Bikkurim: Giving God Our Best

Seven weeks after the first day of Passover, the Bible commands us to celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. Appropriately, Shavuot means “weeks,” marking seven weeks between the two holidays.

The Bible has another name for this holiday, called the “Festival of Harvest,” and on it, we are required to offer God our firstfruits, in Hebrew, bikkurim.

This elaborate and ancient ceremony has much to teach us today about gratitude and giving back to God from the gifts that He has blessed and bestowed upon us throughout each year. To learn more about bikkurim, download your study today.
