a seven day feast

After two weeks of the new year, the Israelites were to celebrate an entire week dedicated to the LORD. Every day new offerings were to be offered. Every day, new aspects of the LORD’s character and provision were to be celebrated.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could carve out some more time from our busy schedules to concentrate on the ONE who matters to us most of all?

LORD, give us a heart to focus our time on YOU.
