Chronological Bible, January 30: Fellowship of the salt…
- Leviticus 1:1-4:35
“And every offering of your grain offering you shall season with salt; you shall not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you shall offer salt.” –Leviticus 2:13, NKJV
Commentators do not completely agree on what this salt requirement means, but those agree it is a reference to God’s faithfulness. Matthew Henry goes further to say that as salt is on every table and eating together in that culture was an act of fellowship, the requirement of salt in all the offerings served as continual reminder of God’s presence and His desire to fellowship with His people.
How incredible that God would choose such a seemingly tiny ingredient to represent His faithfulness! May we remember it well.
