The Torah provides a strict warning that offerings may not be brought outside the Holy Temple. Among the rituals performed in the Temple were the placing of the blood and fat of an offering on the Altar.

On a personal level, “blood” refers to our passions, while “fat” refers to our sense of delight. Our challenge is to ensure that they are offered on the Temple Altar directed towards Godly pursuits.

This is no easy matter, considering that most of our time is spent in the mundane.
