I think that Christians in America, and even in Europe Horn unwittingly, perhaps unknowingly, perhaps but I think, we'reguilty of Christian horter. Let me explain: I don't mean woardingin the way that we see it on television, I'm not talking about poarding trash a lot of times, Ye watch things on T Vand you see horders and they get tras.

I we're not talk about that when I'mpeaking about woarding, I'm talking more about like a child who gets all ofthe candy an Halloween and a horter more than they could ever possibly eat,but they don't share it. That's what I'm speaking about. I think Christians a lot of times orthings that are more precious than even candyto a child. I think Christians hord priceless items. Let me ask you: What would you pay for eternal peace? What would you pay for eternal love? What would you pay for Eternal Li priceless priceless ide...

...and, sadly, you and I are tempted to hoard eternallife to ourselves, even though they're planting to sharewith a whole world we're still tempted to hoard here inlovedicus we're in evidicas centers a throutian Netar rating for the day? Buthere long before Jesus came to hear, God was teaching his children to sharehim with others. I'm linlto read out on theleticett'schapter nine versus twsand and two and twenty three. But then I also want taread in Lovidica's Chapter Ten versus sixteen through twenty to totallydifferent passages. But as we look at Hem through thisconcept of sharing God and knowing God, perhaps we'll connect him levengets,nine versus twenty two and twenty three...

...then earon lifted his hands toward thepeople and bless them and having sacrificed the scend offering theburnoff from the fellowship offering he stepped down. Moses and Aarin then wentinto the tenop meeting and when they came out they bless the people and the glory ofthe Lord appeared to all the people now Chapter Ten er sixty when Moses inquired about the gold ofthe San offering and found that it had been burned up. He was angry eliaor andIthemor Aran's, remaining sons and asked. Why didn't you eat the seenoffering in the Sanctuari area? It is most a holy. It was given to you totake away the guilt of the community by making atonement for them before theLord. Since ITCs blood was not taken into the holy place, you should haveeaten the goat in the sanctuary and,...

...as I commanded Erean replied the Moses Today they sacrifice their sin offering andTheyr B burn offering before the war. But such things as this have happenedto me, would the Lord have been pleased ifIhad eant, Ta Sen, offering today, when Moses heard this, he was satisfied. Lebenicus chapternine. We see Molsusand Ern meeting with God privately in this tent of meet and they're so overwell with God andhis presence that as they come out, they just want to share those blessingswith us. Andso they meet with God. He blesseshim, they come out and they share it with the people. What a beautiful exactof what we should do with God. We meet...

...with him and he touches US and blessesus, and it should cause us to want to share that with others. Share EturnAlove, etern, Alife, eternal peace with others, but why is such sharing of God soimportant? Obviously, if we don't share God withothers, they'll miss out on an opportunity for heave for eternity, but it's even more than that. It's not only that the its out on life eternal in the future. Sat they miss out on life eternal. Now, there's a lot of people around us, a we think would reject God. If we evershared it and yet they're miserable they're, hurter and someone in their family dies. Theyhave no hope. They just have pain...

...and we share God not just for life. Inthe future, but for life now, that's exactly what Erin was saying in the nextchapter. In fact, in chapter ten, we see an incredibly sad day in the lifeof Israel a day when the high priest Eran Lolt two of his sons at the beginningof chapter ten, because they disrespected and didn't believe in God, and yet they were his sons. He Lost Two children on this day. Nevertheless, he was expected toperform his duties and he did perform his duties. He offered the sacrifices. However, he simply could not eat a meal...

...which the high priest was expected toshare with God, because he was frustrated ag. He had lost two of his sins. Andhe knew, God was the reason he lostSOM. Ultimately, they were the reason it was their disrespect, Ive God, but God carried out that punishmentthat their sen deserved and he knew it, and even though he knew God was right,he was frustrated with God. God had struck his sons, while he knew God was good. He wasstill frustrated NDSO. He couldn't bring himself to eata fellowship meal with God at the moment and, as the text makes clear throughMoses is understanding so too. With God's understanding,...

God doesn't excuse behavior, but Godunderstands human weakness. The human maid Eron explains to Moses. If he had eaten,he would have done so with a heart which wasn't right yet and Moses accepted such as God, except such in fact it appears from the text. Thiswas the right thing to do what to be honest with God about our frustration. That's the righ thing to do God. I know you're good. I know my sons der wrong, but I'm just frustrated at it right now at you in some ways, but more at the entire situation. I'mjust frustrated that type of honesty...

...is good to be honest with God about ourfrustrations, because God understands our weaknesses and our frealties he'd ever excuses them. You didn't hearme say: God excuses our weaknesses and freltice; no, he doesn't, but he was tempted. Jesus himself wastempted and like manner as us, yet withoutse we're tempted Jesus was tempted. Justlike us. We see it. He never did, but he was tempted in like manner. That's why we share God with others, because God understands ourfrostrations, even when our frustrations at times areaimed at him, even when we are frustrated with Godthat he would allow tragedies in our...

...lives. He doesn't excuse such, but he understands our fraility. He never excuses doubt, but he understands our weaknessesinultimately. It is he who helps us through thesetrials, ultimately, even with Eric, it was Godwho helped him through that' Ri, our frustrations with God, ultimatelylead to a greater understanding of God and his goodness, which in turn brings healing HRMAS. We learned in Joe. It is seen toever accuse God...

...of being unjust or a being wrong or of saying God. You shouldn't havedone that. That's it! Nevertheless, when something bad happens in our lives, when we lose the child, when something occurs and we're justlike God, why did you let that happen? There's almost a bitterness that startsto creep into our lives and work upsed at God for letting it happen. He understands our franty. He understands our human weakness and he's the one that meets us there and brings us through that trial sothat when it's over we're closer to him than we ever werebefore,...

...we share God not with people just forthe life to Co. But can you imagine going through thelolls of a child without God, many have you watching have gone fromthe lalls of a child with God and you've been frustrated and you'veeven said to God, God kind o frustrated it you that you let this Habi his tiner arms reach out to you. He doesn't bring his finger out andpoint at you. Instead, he seiz your wingness andfrealty and he reaches nown. Then he comforts you even as Eran would eventually becovered and Aarin was just expressing a humanfrailty and God would take that and bring eron around. Just as he does you,and I that's why we share God, it's not...

...just for eternal life to come, Istohelp people in their life now to help them make it through the trialsat their experiencing. Now, let's not hoard, eternal peace, eternal joy, eternal life, eternal love, especially when there's planty to sharewith Allive crees, let Shar Er with others even today, because they need it not just for heaven they needed for what they're going to this day.
