Deuteronomy 12:20 “When Yahveh your God enlarges your territory as he has promised you, and you say, ‘I want to eat meat’ because you have a strong desire to eat meat, you may eat it whenever you want.
Deuteronomy 12:21 If the place where Yahveh your God chooses to place his name is too far from you, you may slaughter any of your herd or flock he has given you, as I have commanded you, and you may eat it within your city gates whenever you want.
Deuteronomy 12:22 You may certainly eat it as the gazelle and deer are eaten; both the pure and the contaminated may eat it.

With the possession of the promised land will come more land for more flocks and herds. The Israelites will not have to reserve their animals for only religious offerings. They will have plenty to satisfy their own appetites as well.

The the New Testament corollary to the promised land — the mind of Christ— is also related to this allowance. Satan wants us to avoid holiness because he tells us that we will be missing out on so much. The fact is, once we are disciplined to live holy lives before God, we will find that we have an abundance to enjoy.

Lord, lead us to your holiness, and help us to stop trusting the lies of the enemy.
