Chapter 26 teaches us the principle of confession when we give. When they gave, they were to make declaration how it is the LORD who set them free from Egypt and brought them into a good land. They were reminding themselves that God always meticulously takes care of His people. Then they would lay down their offering in worship and rejoice and ask God to bless His people. When we give an offering, we should take a moment to thank the LORD for His faithfulness and ask Him to continue His blessings.
I didn’t write much about the many laws contained in these Scriptures, but would love to hear any comments or questions.
