Today I read Leviticus 7 where the Lord finishes His instructions on the various sacrifices to be made, including how to sacrifice and which parts are to be consumed by the priests. Sometimes the Old Testament to me seems like a scavenger hunt. You dig and dig and dig through the ordinary and occasionally you find nuggets of precious truths. Now, I only say that because we no longer follow the Law of Moses and no longer sacrifice animals to Heavenly Father. If we did, then the Old Testament would be invaluable, because we cannot worship God without knowing how to worship.
Every generation has had prophets and every prophet has told the people how to worship Heavenly Father. In olden days, it was a little more complicated. In modern times, we are asked to follow the commandments and to live the law of the Gospel, Consecration and Chastity. These laws are important in our progression towards becoming more like Heavenly Father.
I sometimes wonder why people have such a hard time understanding that God is an exalted man. I guess because they think it diminishes His power and authority somehow. But I personally think it is the most natural thing in the world. However, I also have a wonderful earthly father that I look up to and strive to be like so to me it is perfectly logical that I have an Heavenly Father to strive to be like too. I am glad for Heavenly Father's servants throughout the years, centuries and millenia that recorded His words so that we have it all now, at least all that has been revealed to us, so that we can understand His nature and how we can progress like Him. Until tomorrow.
