My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Ezekiel 46

Sabbath and gifts

Summary:
The temple will be shut six days a week, and the prince will be first to give his special sin offering on the Sabbath. You have to leave through a different gate than which you entered. The prince will also do the last sacrifice.

A lamb will be offered each day. Gifts to sons last forever, but gifts to slaves last until they are free.

Ezekiel was then shown the cooking at eats rooms for the priests.

Key verse:
17. If, however, he makes a gift from his inheritance to one of his servants, the servant may keep it until the year of freedom; then it will revert to the prince.

My thoughts:
We are sons of God, not servants. And through sketchy hermeneutics, the gifts he gives us we keep forever.
