Sorry I never got this posted yesterday. I did the reading as I hope you guys did too, I just never had time to post it. My apologies.

Proverbs 16:

Proverbs 17:

Proverbs 18:

Romans 12:

Verse 1 is one of the building blocks of our faith. In the Old testament days a sacrifice was required for repentance of sins. The blood of an animal made atonement for the wrong or sin that was done by an individual. The blood paid the price for the wrong that was done. Because you were paying off a debt in a sense, you had to pay the correct or fair price. For example if a dead animal was offered, that blood was considered worthless, there was no trade-off. If the animal was wounded, weak or sick, that blood would come up short of paying off the debt. God required of the people in those days to offer their best animal, an animal without spot or blemish. The law required a perfect animal to pay back the price of your sin. So now when Paul says that we are to offer ourselves as living sacrifices, we are to be the animal without spot or blemish. Obviously we are not going to kill ourselves that’s why its a living sacrifice. But for the rest of our lives we are to strive to be that type of offering to God, where our lives are worthy or blameless in the eyes of God. Dont get it confused though, we will always stumble, All fall short; but are you still stumbling on the same sin you did 5 years ago? Or do you still keep doing something you know is wrong? Those are the things we need to be without spot or blemish. Those are the things that need to be removed in order to follow this command from Paul.
