Saturday - Leviticus 22 – Temporarily Disqualified

Probation serves two purposes. The person under probation is temporarily restrained under restrictive discipline and the people who might otherwise be affected by that person are thereby protected from him.  In this complex list of regulations, there is a probationary principle laid down and the reason behind it is explained.

The key phrase here is "until he be clean" he shall not do thus and so. Or, in the case of a sacrifice, "It shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein." And, why is that? Because, (He said) "I will be hallowed among the children of Israel: I am the LORD which hallow you ..."  But, by all means - don't throw in the towel while God is still cheering for you. His mercies are still new every morning!
