Sukkot and God
Sukkot (September 21-29, 2021) is a time of joy, celebration, and closeness with God as the Jewish people shelter in huts to commemorate the desert survival under God’s cloud of Glory; and pray for the past year of rains, crops, and righteous judgment for the coming year.
Scripture today was Psalm 34:8 AMP: “O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good; How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who takes refuge in Him.”
Almighty God is favorable toward humankind, and we should acknowledge His goodness every day for the many blessing that He provides for us to live on earth. We forget our life might have ended overnight as many people didn’t awake to see the light of day. The holiday Sukkot has given me a new appreciation of life and the seriousness of living because my Jewish sisters and brothers know how to celebrate their life with God. They know how to ask for forgiveness, study the Torah, and assemble as a whole body of people. As Christians, we could take a few lessons from our Jewish cousins and learn to praise, honor, love, and worship God Almighty every day with a reverent and pure heart. Read Just the Edge of God
