I'm studying Exodus 23:1-4, 6-9 this week, the Laws of Justice and Mercy. These are the rules handed down from God to Moses, who in turn decreed them to the Israelites. People seem to get hung up on all the rules instead of looking at the big picture of what the Old Testament really is.
I believe the books of the Old Testament is an account of God in His great love showing His people exactly how much they need Him. There is no earthly, man-made way to follow all the rules He gave.
You cannot rely on yourself.
You must rely on Him.
You NEED a Savior.
Okay. I got a little sidetracked...but I needed to be write it. :) Back to Exodus 23...
