God’s Covenants and Promises for Your Life

The word brit (covenant) carries a connotation of the shedding of blood.  This is nothing unusual: even from the earliest of times, covenant agreements were often ratified by animal sacrifice or an exchange of blood.

Israel is preparing for the High Holy Days starting with the month of ELUL

During Elul, the Jewish People begin the process of asking for forgiveness of the wrongs done to one another. According to Jewish tradition, we must first go to the person we have wronged asking for forgiveness before God can forgive us for the sins we committed against that person.
