  • 20 "When the LORD your God enlarges your territory, as he has promised you, and you say, 'I will eat meat,' because you crave meat, you may eat meat whenever you desire.
    21 If the place that the LORD your God will choose to put his name there is too far from you, then you may kill any of your herd or your flock, which the LORD has given you, as I have commanded you, and you may eat within your towns whenever you desire.
    22 Just as the gazelle or the deer is eaten, so you may eat of it. The unclean and the clean alike may eat of it.
    23 Only be sure that you do not eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh.
    24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it out on the earth like water.
    25 You shall not eat it, that all may go well with you and with your children after you, when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD.
    26 But the holy things that are due from you, and your vow offerings, you shall take, and you shall go to the place that the LORD will choose,
    27 and offer your burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, on the altar of the LORD your God. The blood of your sacrifices shall be poured out on the altar of the LORD your God, but the flesh you may eat.
    28 Be careful to obey all these words that I command you, that it may go well with you and with your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the sight of the LORD your God.
    29 "When the LORD your God cuts off before you the nations whom you go in to dispossess, and you dispossess them and dwell in their land,
    30 take care that you be not ensnared to follow them, after they have been destroyed before you, and that you do not inquire about their gods, saying, 'How did these nations serve their gods?--that I also may do the same.'
    31 You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way, for every abominable thing that the LORD hates they have done for their gods, for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods.
    32 "Everything that I command you, you shall be careful to do. You shall not add to it or take from it.

이해하기(Understanding)
Worship must happen in every aspect of life. God spoke to them not only about the cattle and lamb used for offering at the temple, but also about the meat they ate for food every day. Anyone, whether they are clean or unclean, was able to eat meat but all were commanded to not eat the blood. This is why we need to give God glory wherever we are and whenever we eat (vv. 20-28). We need to worship God according to His ways, not the ways of the world. The people of Canaan sacrificed their children as an offering, and God warned His people not to follow those evil ways (vv. 29-32).

적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God wanted the people of Israel to live differently from the people of Canaan. This is why Israel had to live according to God’s laws and commands, not the ways of Canaan. In what ways are you listening to God’s Word so that you don’t follow the ways of the world?

What is the lesson for me?
We need to be people who are sensitive to God’s will, not skilled in the ways of the world. Are there things that your friends do that are displeasing to the God that you follow? Write down the things that you did while with your friends that you shouldn’t have done or followed, and what ways you can be an example to them.

기도하기(Praying)
Help me to become sensitive to Your Word and not the trends of the world.
