Then he shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him. Lev. 1:4

When the person presenting the sacrifice lays his hand on the unblemished animal sacrifice (v. 3-4) the perfection and beauty of the sacrifice is transferred to him and God sees him and accepts him in the perfection of the animal. In Hebrew the word “accepted” literally means being treated with favor, acceptance and delight. The perfection of Jesus has been transferred to you! Jesus was our burnt offering. His beauty and perfection has been transferred to you! When the Father sees you He sees Him!

I Hate Profanity- Boyace Van Harlan Jr., PhD

I hate profanity! I make no apologies here, but I really hate hearing profanity being spewed out of someone’s mouth. When I hear it; figuratively it is as if someone has hit me in the face with projectile vomit. I was looking in the bargain section at a local bookstore today and I spotted a book written by the comic Tracy Morgan entitled; “Tracy Morgan, I Am the New Black”. Intrigued by the title and the cover with Tracy standing with that patented goofy look of his, a nice white suit, shirt opened, exposed pot belly, black bunny ears poised on his head! I looked at the outside cover of the book’s jacket and laughed out loud as I read its content:

THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME was being brought up hard. It’s kept me hungry, even though I’ve got more than I ever thought I’d see in this lifetime. It doesn’t matter how much I accumulate- I’ll be starving for the rest of my life, that’s for damn sure. They say when opportunity knocks you should let it in and invite it to sit at your table. F*** that- when opportunity knocks, you should take it captive. Beat that s*** down. I’ve got opportunity tied to a chair in my basement with a ball gag in its mouth. Opportunity ain’t even thinking about leaving my house.”Image



Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
