March 21 Bible reading

20 03 2019

March 21 Proverbs 7:21-27 Luke 3:23-38; 4:1-13 Numbers 11:4-35; 12; 13:1-25

Please read the suggested passages, prayerfully consider them, and the questions below. My comments here may be helpful after those moments. The suggested daily reading is for 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 has been expressed through Jesus.
• 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?

March 21 Proverbs 7:21-27 Luke 3:23-38; 4:1-13 Numbers 11:4-35; 12; 13:1-25
Proverbs 7:21-27 Immoral sexual affairs carry serious life-changing consequences. Separation from God and others may result from pursuing such actions regardless of the Creator’s design. It may feel good at first but then it feels bad, a sure sign of disorder.
Luke 3:23-38; 4:1-13 The genealogy of Jesus shows that God cares about every life, honors faithfulness, and redeems mistakes. The devil comes to tempt Jesus when He sees an opportunity as Jesus was fasting. Jesus used Scripture to resist the temptation. The way that Jesus quotes Scripture should be an example. Understanding the truth of each Scripture, in context, Jesus was able to use the Scripture powerfully when the time came.
Numbers 11:4-35; 12; 13:1-25 In Numbers we see that the elders shared the responsibility of leading people. When the people were not satisfied with God and what He had provided, they complained. God punished complaining that showed a lack of appreciation, faith, and trust in their relationship. God cares about how we respond to Him.
