For years I have preferred the New Testament over the Old Testament. Since times are so different I never really knew how to apply the Old Testament scriptures to my life. We are not commanded to give sacrifices or keep the feast days as the Israelites were in the days before Christ. Thus I always read more of the New Testament.
Recently however, God has opened my eyes and has let me see those old stories in a new light. Now they seem full of spiritual values that I can try to obtain myself. So many of the things they went through are similar to those I have. Why didn't I see this before? Perhaps I didn't seek to understand. But now I do, and I am thoroughly enjoying it!
