Psalm: 107

Meditation

Ecclesiasticus: First dreams then sacrifices. I have heard it said that we all dream. When I dream (or if I dream) I can only manage to salvage but snippets of the phantoms. As Sirach tells us dreams are but fantasies and nothing of worth unless sent by God as in Joseph’s, Daniel’s and Joseph’s (NT) cases. Those were actually earth-altering each. So, “pay attention to them.” (v. 6) Sacrifices, certainly before Christ, were the very epitome of Temple worship. Moses insisted on the best, no sloppy seconds, for sacrifice. (vv. 21-22)
