--Even today, many Christians think they have to be religious enough or righteous enough to reach Heaven/God’s presence
--In 6&7, the hypothetical seeker gradually asks if more and more expensive things would be sufficient, ending with an absurd sacrifice.
--But Lord, you have told me what you want, for me to take care of the oppressed, love everyone I meet, and walk in faith and reverence before you
--You brought the sacrifice. You don’t want me to be anxiously penitent, always giving things up or hurting myself in hopes of paying for my sins. You already paid for them.
Now, you have work for me to do.
