May 28 Bible reading

27 05 2019

May 28  Proverbs 13:10-19  John 18:1-24  1 Samuel 21; 22; 23

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?

May 28  Proverbs 13:10-19  John 18:1-24  1 Samuel 21; 22; 23

Proverbs 13:10-19  Seeing a dream come true should be met with marked gratitude. Careful consideration before taking action requires wisdom. With wisdom, you can help people avoid some serious trouble.

John 18:1-24  In face of Roman soldiers and Temple guards, Jesus is honest about His identity and protects His followers. Peter attempts to protect Jesus violently, and yet Jesus chooses to accept the suffering. As Jesus predicted, both Judas and Peter betray Him. Jesus and His followers feel the pain of these betrayals. This suffering is an important part of Jesus’ story. The High Priest of Israel ordered the beating of Jesus. This is an additional betrayal. Jesus asks why this decision has been made. Jesus maintains His innocence. Jesus is falsely accused and personally betrayed. Our Redeemer has experienced great suffering.

1 Samuel 21; 22; 23  David is described as being more faithful than any servant to King Saul. Jealous rage consumes Saul, and he kills priests who helped David flee. Saul’s son Jonathan encourages David with faith that Saul would not be able to kill David, and the belief that David would eventually be king. What life-giving words as David hides in the wilderness. Saul gave up, and David did not.
