"It is not proper to do so, for we will offer the god of Egypt to Yahveh our Elohim." Exodus 8:26
After the Egyptians were hit with four plagues, Pharaoh
finally agreed to allow the children of Israel to offer sacrifices to Yahveh. However, he added a condition that it must be
done in Egypt. Moses responded by saying that they would be slaughtering animals that the Egyptians considered to be their
gods and the Egyptian people might react violently, and that would not be the proper thing to do.
At times we encounter
opposition to our way of worship and people can become quite upset with us. We can avoid hurting others by not doing it in
front of them. Do not spite people as if to say, "I don't care what they think - I am doing my thing". Try to show others
respect, especially when serving Yahveh.
