Stop Looking Up Their Robes!
Ladies, have you ever been touring a place in a skirt and had to go up or down a ladder type set of steps? Or depending on how a set of stairs are set up, just up or down a set of stairs?
Guys, this can be very awkward for us girls.
Who is behind us, or under us, looking up our skirts?
When studying the Old Testament I’ve often expressed how glad I am that I don’t have to follow all those rules. One, I’m certain I couldn’t remember them all. Two, some of them are just, well, over the top in my opinion.
However, today I read one that made me laugh! I had to go back and read it twice!
Then I texted it to my husband even though I knew he would be reading the same thing today. I wanted to make sure he didn’t miss it.
Robes weren’t banned.
These instructions weren’t for women. They weren’t even for the common worshiper. The instruction was for priests.
The rules changed later in scripture. Steps were allowed and undergarments were wore under the robes to cover the flesh.
Usually I write to motivate, encourage, or teach. Today, I found something that I’d never noticed before that made me smile and wanted to share it.
I know that all scripture is given to teach and that there is a lesson here. I’m not mocking the lesson. I do believe God gave us a sense of humor, though, and there isn’t anything wrong in exercising it!
So, what have you found in scripture that has tickled you? Come on! Let’s share some laughter today!
