The word holy means “apartness, holiness, sacredness, separateness”. It refers to the distinct nature of God. Several times in the Law, God admonished Israel to “be holy because I am holy.” Likewise, offerings given to the LORD are called holy offerings. This means that Israel was to treat them differently. Offerings to God were not taxes, they were not a normal economic purchase, they were offerings to a holy God. How Israel dealt with them was important. Even today, how we give to God is important. We need to treat God with the respect that is due Him, and any gifts to Him as of a different sort. When we use our resources of time, livelihood, and lifestyle to build the Kingdom of God, we are giving God a type of modern offering. Like the Israelites of old let us be holy like our God, and like the Christians of the first century let us live our lives entirely, with nothing held back, as holy living sacrifices (ROMANS 12).
