The Day of Atonement is rich in spiritual meaning. It pictures the elimination of Satan’s influence and the reconciliation of all mankind to God an reminds us of our need for humility and our complete dependence on God for life and eternal life. We must make choices small and great every day to obey and stay close to God and be like Him in word and deed. We must prepare ourselves to teach the world about forgiveness and humility and remain reconciled to God. We should be like God our Father and want all people to be like God, too.
