Commentary: There were three acceptable offerings that could be made before the Lord and the instructions for each are clear and precise. Important points are frequently emphasized more than once, and there was no room for negotiation. The best is to be given to the Lord, which requires energy and effort! Honoring the Lord is not a checklist; it requires conscious thought and action every day! A piece offering is similar to a burnt offering, however, instead of the entirety of the meat being burned, only the specific portion, a choice portion, was burnt.
Focus Verses: 1:3,10,14; 2:1,4-5,7,14; 3:1,6,12 What do all these offerings have in common? What do they say about how we should give of ourselves to the Lord? What part of yourself and your life do you give to the Lord? Are you truly honoring him?
