Today’s verses are Exodus 29:15-18, “Take one ram, and Aaron and his sons are to lay their hands on the ram’s head. You are to slaughter the ram, take its blood, and sprinkle it on all sides of the altar. Cut the ram into pieces. Wash its entrails and shanks, and place them with its head and its pieces on the altar. Then burn the whole ram on the altar; it is a burnt offering to the Lord. It is a pleasant aroma, a fire offering to the Lord.” My mother suggested that maybe God likes the smell of a barbecue.
