If she cannot afford a lamb, then she shall take two turtledoves, or two young pigeons; the one for a burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.
With those words from Leviticus as backdrop, let’s fast forward thousands of years to the presentation of Jesu to the priest. Evidently we see that God uses
the simple things of this world to confound the wise
First we see Jesus (the very essence of life) born in a manger as there were no rooms in the inns. Then we see His parents turning up to the temple with Two Turtle Doves in compliance and adherence with the requirements of the law.
They were so ordinary that the priest lacking Spiritual Intelligence just blessed baby Jesus like any other child. The hierarchies have once again been bypassed, this time for two ordinary people with extraordinary spirits (Simeon and Anna) to rise to the occasion – Glory to God!
Friends we have what money cannot buy – we have in us the very life of God. As demonstrated by; Joseph, Mary, Simeon and Anna, lets stop chasing shadows at the expense of that which is transcending.
Break up your fallow grounds, for it is time to seek The Lord
Yes, thats what Time it is.
