Numbers (Week 2)

Totally slacked off on my reading this week (Happy Thanksgiving, Yall!) so I am still in Numbers... but today was such a beautiful day. I found this perfect little place in a town called Joshua with the trees you see below... and I realized that although the book of Numbers in the Bible is still important to read and understand, the only number that truly matters is: one. There is only one God, and He is good.

Today I read the entire book of Leviticus, start to finish. 

The third book of the Bible, it includes a very graphic, clear-cut set of instructions for God's people... Accordingly, I thought I would take a very graphic and clear-cut approach to this week's images: instead of starting with a photograph, I am starting with a stark white canvas and leaving plenty of room for the black and white, clear-cut, Godly instructions to shine through.

* If you know me well, you will know that Leviticus 11:20-23 was exceptionally interesting to me. My Bible's (CEV) translation says: "The only winged insects you may eat are locusts, grasshoppers, and crickets. All other winged insects that crawl are too disgusting for you to eat." Is it possible to laugh and cringe at the same time?
* Another verse that made me laugh today: Leviticus 13:45. For any school or Sunday school teacher who is as slightly germophobic as me, it's a really funny image of what life would be like if people actually obeyed this commandment.
