December 26 Bible reading

25 12 2018

Each day of the year I’ll post verses to read, with the purpose of reading through the whole Bible within a year.

Reading the Bible is helpful in taking next steps to follow Jesus. It may not be easy and yet it can be rewarding. Digging into Scripture alongside people you know is a life-giving way to pursue answers together. We discover the love that God has for us, expressed through Jesus.

Please read the verses below, prayerfully consider them, and then my comments may be helpful after those moments.

December 26  Proverbs 31:10-20  Revelation 18:1-17  Nehemiah 5; 6; 7:1-3

What’s the plain simple truth of the verses you read?

Based on today’s reading, what is one thing God is saying to you?

What should you do about that truth?

A wife of noble character is worthy of love and respect at all times. She is more valuable than money or any other natural resource. Such a virtuous woman is a good steward and an example to many.

John sees a vision of the final victory of Jesus. John hears a voice calling people to resist the temptation of temporary pleasures offered by deceptive dark spirits in our world. Many people will be shocked to find great destruction in this natural world, despite their best efforts, as a result of their refusal to worship the Almighty God. Perfect peace and love are available through Jesus Christ.

Nehemiah learned that business people were taking advantage of poor people during the reconstruction. He put an end to this. Nehemiah was always a good example of stewardship. He was careful to use his position for the purpose of God’s will and never to his own personal advantage. Nehemiah remained focused on God’s plan. He did not get distracted by critics and manipulators. He defended the work of God, for the good of the people.
