The Priest's Examination

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Leviticus 13 today.
God gives commands and instructions, and He expects us to think, using our judgment in how He wants things carried out. For example, if an Israelite had a shiny spot on the body, but did not appear to be deeper than the skin, and if the hair in that area had not turned white, the person was to be isolated for seven days. Here is what happened next, “And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day; and indeed if the sore appears to be as it was, and the sore has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall isolate him another seven days” (Leviticus 13:5).
The priest knew what God wanted by following the instructions and commandments in the Book of Leviticus. Still, the priest had to look at the sore and use his judgment to determine what was to be done with the person.
It is the same today, that is, God wants us to obey and think. Yet, we seem to have a hard time doing that. We might believe that thinking excludes obeying or that obeying excludes thinking.
Watch yourself today and see if you can do both.
