Explained in Leviticus 2 are the ingredients of the grain offering including the finest flour, olive oil, and incense. The grain offering is made without yeast and seasoned with salt as it is baked in an oven, on a griddle, or pan.
The grain offering with the ingredients above is prepared and presented to Aaron’s sons the priests (v. 2). The priests burn the memorial portion on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord. The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and his sons.
The meaning of covenant and memorial as related to the grain offering was a gift of thanks to God. Made with pure ingredients to symbolize no corruption. Grinded with hands to symbolize dedication to the Lord’s work with the use of our hands. It reminded people that their food came from God and they owed their lives to Him.
Like a great harvest, God has given all that we need. Now it’s time to glorify God by stepping ahead trusting Christ for help in encouraging others, sharing testimony, and being there for those around us. The things we do for God’s glory are our offerings of praise.
This day with You Lord will be amazing because we are totally focused on a purpose and the purpose You have for us is a big one. We may not feel that we are ready or capable but that’s not the issue. The issue is about saying “yes” and knowing that we are never alone. Through our prayers, You provide instructions for each step to get us closer to fulfilling our purpose. Amen.
