let it go

My sweet devotional forces me to read Leviticus--to be honest, a book I probably wouldn't get into otherwise.

In Lev. 16:20-30, this Aaron guy is instructed to lay his hands on a goat, confess all the sins of the people of Israel (talk about an ear-full..uhh, head-full) and this goat was sent into the wilderness.

I thought this was so cool.

It then gives these instructions:

Experience the feeling of transferring your sin to this animal.

In the section that gives you an idea of how to apply the passage to your life situation, it says this:

Quiet your mind and wait on God to show you situations in which you need to remember what you just did.

I just might have to get into this Old Testament stuff :)
