March 29 Bible reading

28 03 2019

March 29 Proverbs 8:12-21 Luke 7:36-50 Numbers 26:12-65; 27:1-11

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 29 Proverbs 8:12-21 Luke 7:36-50 Numbers 26:12-65; 27:1-11

Proverbs 8:12-21 When we seek the wisdom of God, we will learn discernment and good decision-making skills. This can help us earn money and make good use of it. Developing this practice into a life skill will save us from plenty of self-inflicted headaches.

Luke 7:36-50 Jesus brings forgiveness of sin to “that certain immoral woman”, and describes her response as gratitude. At this moment, Jesus is confronting the heart response and behavior of a religious leader, while talking about the value of forgiveness. This is, in particular, a lesson about coming to Jesus repenting of sin, receiving forgiveness, and responding with gratitude.

Numbers 26:12-65; 27:1-11 In Numbers we see that every person matters to God. Each person is named. Their life recorded. God has been true to His word. We read here that God wanted to ensure that each person was provided for.
