Is Your House Contaminated? – Leviticus 14:33 – 16

Is Your House Contaminated? - Leviticus 14:33 - 16Today’s reading is Leviticus 14:33 – 16. The main sections discuss 1) treatment of contaminated houses, 2) bodily discharges and 3) the day of atonement.

I read through the section on the treatment of contaminated houses several times. What I was reading was talking about mildew and the treatment of same. However, what I kept thinking about is the importance of a healthy home. And, not just concerning leprosy in the house.

Sin is a plague in a home just as it is in a heart. As the spiritual leaders (priests) of our families, we should be diligent to be aware of the first signs of sin in our families, and deal with it immediately and completely – just as with the mildew on the walls. Otherwise, we might be drawn into sin, and like mildew it may spread, and defile and destroy all within.

God’s law said to take drastic measures – even to the extent of completely tearing down the house – if the mildew could not be eliminated. In the same manner, we must be prepared to take drastic measures to deal with sin in our home. Our future relationship with God depends upon it.

Just like the Israelites (Deuteronomy 20:5), our homes need to be dedicated for we are a holy nation, a royal priesthood. Then, we must also keep our houses clean from all leprosy – sin.
