In times of stress and anxiety people are given to be more open to conspiracy theories the other day I was talking to someone in the community as a result of the shutdown and they had been in their home for 5 or 6 days and they were worried to come out. You know because thinking is there anything that old book says about quarantine about being put aside because we're worried about disease and then I remember that ancient book of Leviticus where God's rules concerning who could come into the camp and how the camp and how you would take care of then but also sanitation and public health issues I remember that book and I looked and I began to read Chapter 13 chapter 14 Chapter 15 and I saw something that that really gave me great peace you know it was quarantine didn't begin with our government to begin with God when he saw that there was a problem he protected his people by taking those that maybe had a disease or maybe had a sickness and keeping them outside the camp 1st of all for 7 days then they were rechecked and then another 7 days and this was all done by the priests who were also the physicians of the day and a call came over me because I realized that the same procedures the same ideas that we're seeing today that are meant to protect us. For something that was originated by God So. You know as a Christian are called to be a priest the priesthood of all believers we could all act in that way. Bringing protection when it's needed not to separate one another for all time but maybe just for a short time until we get healthy and we can come back again as a congregation and come together and praise because we took the percussions we needed and that just ministered to my heart and I hope it does yours too.
