Provision for the Priests [Leviticus 6]


14'Now this is the law of the grain offering: the sons of Aaron shall present it before the LORD in front of the altar. 15'Then one of them shall lift up from it a handful of the fine flour of the grain offering, with its oil and all the incense that is on the grain offering, and he shall offer it up in smoke on the altar, a soothing aroma, as its memorial offering to the LORD. 16'What is left of it Aaron and his sons are to eat. It shall be eaten as unleavened cakes in a holy place; they are to eat it in the court of the tent of meeting. 17'It shall not be baked with leaven.  I have given it as their share from My offerings by fire; it is most holy, like the sin offering and the guilt offering. 18'Every male among the sons of Aaron may eat it; it is a permanent ordinance throughout your generations, from the offerings by fire to the LORD Whoever touches them will become consecrated.'" 

 

Some of the offering were given to the priests to eat for their food.  Eating consecrated sacrifices also made them holy.  God's provision for the priests demonstrates His love and tender care for those ministering to His people.  "I have given it as their share from My offerings by fire."  

 

Father, we praise You for Your tender loving care.  You are a God who provides everything we need.  You know how to feed Your people. Thank You for Jesus, who is our great High Priest.
