February 18th, Leviticus 8-10: Moses consecrates the priests

Leviticus 8 records Moses consecrating Aaron and his sons to be the priests for the Israelites. The divination of Urim and Thummim was placed in the high priest’s breastplate.

Leviticus 9 records the beginning of the priests’ ministry.

Leviticus 10 records the first deaths of two priests for failing to follow the LORD’s instructions. Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu added incense to the fire, and the unauthorized fire consumed them and they died before the LORD. Eleazar and Ithmar, Aaron’s remaining sons, managed to mess up by not eating the sin offering in the sanctuary area.

Question: Isn’t it amazing how quickly we forget God’s instructions for our lives?
