Written by the finger of God

Exodus 29 -30

Today, the words found in chapter 30: 18 struck a chord ~
written by the finger of God.

Details were mentioned yesterday and details continued today being given by God to Moses for us to follow.  Important enough that this is the first time it is mentioned that they were written down and not only written down, but by God's own finger!  Important...

It reminded me of the story in John 8 about the woman caught in adultery that was humiliated in front of the crowd with her sin.  Men trying to trap Jesus in to saying anything they might use against him were throwing the woman out in front of everyone.  Jesus slowly knelt down and began to write in the sand with his finger.  Imagine, the scene.  Loud, demands being made, shame, self-righteousness, and Jesus begins to write in the sand.  Diffuses the situation a little, doesn't it?  Yet, it's important just like when God wrote the Ten Commandments.  

God is in the details.  

Forgiveness matters.

God is in charge and knows what matters with each one of us!  He is in the details and knows the details!

Sweet blessings,
