The heritage of the saints

Today happens to be Heritage Day in South Africa, and were it not on a Saturday, would be a public holiday. And boy do we love our public holidays in this country.

What this translates to for much of the country is having a braai. There are other parts of our multi-faceted culture (all of 11 official languages), but when you drill right down to it, we basically all love food.

And so we begin…

Outstanding conditions for the braai

Making preparations for the braai

Braai tools

What are those random tools doing there?

As people of God, we have a heritage that comes from Him:

“no weapon forged against you will prevail,
    and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
    and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17, NIV).

I do sometimes wonder though whether the sacrifices in the Temple in Jerusalem smelled in any way like a braai…
