Proverbs of a 38 yr old man

The oldest sons belong to the LORD. In the future your son will ask you about this. “What does this mean?” he will ask. And you will reply to him. “With great power the LORD brought us away from Egypt where we were slaves. Pharaoh was very proud. And he refused to give our freedom to us. So the LORD killed every oldest son in the Egyptian families. And he killed every Egyptian animal that was born first to its mother. That is why we give animals to the LORD. We give to the LORD our male animals that are born first. And we give an animal to the LORD in order to buy back our oldest sons. That will remind you. It will be like a mark on your hand. Or it will be like a sign on the front of your head. It will remind you that the LORD brought us away from Egypt by means of his great power.” On this Memorial Day let us honor and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country so we can have our freedom. But also let this day remind us what God in Christ has done for this broken world. For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son. That whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. Let this be like a mark on your hand. Or it will be like a sign on the front of your head. It will remind you that the LORD brought you away from sin and death by means of his great power. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: “Wait! Don’t harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have placed the seal of God on the foreheads of his servants.”
