Let Us Give Thanks - Day 15

Before I start today's challenges I would like to say something about our recent election in the US.
No matter who is president in this country or any other country, God is King. If we can meet each other there, in God, and talk and comfort and listen, we can heal and make this country great again. We cannot do it through violence and rage at each other. We can only do it through the love of God.

May your day be blessed with holy things. Amen

Day 16 - 30 Day Thanksgiving Prayer Challenge by Rosilnd
Ephesians 5:3-4
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.

Write this in your Prayer Journal and pray it throughout the day.

Day 15 - Art and Faith Journal Challenge

I hope you are enjoying digging deeper into these scriptures as much as I am. I find the commentaries particularly interesting.

Praise and Thanksgiving Scripture Study

Leviticus 7:12 (NIV)
If they offer it as an expression of thankfulness,
then along with this thank offering they are to offer
thick loaves made without yeast and brushed with oil,
and thick loaves of the finest flour well-kneaded
and with oil mixed in.

Write this in your journal. Add art, if you so desire.

Digging Deeper

Other translations
If he offers it for a thanksgiving,
then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving
unleavened cakes mingled with oil,
and unleavened wafers anointed with oil,
and cakes mingled with oil,
of fine flour, fried.

(Other translation were similar.)

Expression - utterance - pronouncement - declaration

Nelson's Bible Commentary
The sacrifice of thanksgiving required three kinds of unleavened cakes and leavened bread.

Art and Faith Journal

I wrote part of the verse on the outside of the pocket with a fine point sharpie and added the floral drawing. I wrote the complete verse on the tag.

1. Bread
2. Cakes
3. Cookies

Phil 1:4
In all my prayers for all of you,
I always pray with joy.
