“And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day [Day of Atonement], the same soul will I destroy from among his people.”
In our day and age, it sounds pretty harsh to condemn a man to death, just because he worked on the Day of Atonement. The problem is that the individual had a whole lot other days to get his jobs done, to work on the Day of Atonement demonstrates that their priorities did not include their relationship with God.
We need to make sure our priorities are straight, placing God on the very top, and not allowing anything to get in the way of our fellowship with Him. Anyone who places profiting higher than their relationship with God will be cursed!
