Scripture for the day
The Lord said to Moses, "Tell Aaron and his sons, this is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
So they will put my name on the Israelites and I will bless them."
Numbers 6:22-27 (The Priestly Blessing)
What does it mean for the Lord to make His face shine on us?
What does it mean for the Lord to turn His face towards us?
Are these things the same or different?
