31 05 2019

June 1  Proverbs 13:20-25; 14:1-4  John 20:10-31  2 Samuel 1; 2:1-7

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?

June 1  Proverbs 13:20-25; 14:1-4  John 20:10-31  2 Samuel 1; 2:1-7

Proverbs 13:20-25; 14:1-4  Spending time with people who live by wisdom will help you grow as a person, a wise person. Taking away what a poor person had to work hard for is an injustice. God cares about making right such a wrong. Parents who love their children will provide healthy boundaries and train them to respect the consequences of bad decisions. Parents show love by preparing their children for their future lives. This includes protecting them from possible pain by teaching them how to make good decisions.

John 20:10-31  The resurrected Jesus spends time with His friends and followers in private, helping them be restored to peace. This shows the value Jesus placed on personal relationships. John states the purpose of his eyewitness account, in hope that it would be helpful in the belief in Jesus as Messiah, “that you will have life by the power of His name”. Salvation and eternal life are coming to us if we will believe in Jesus as the Son of God and receive Him as Lord. John understood the essential nature of this simple truth. Jesus is the Savior. Let us daily hear the call to look at Jesus in this way.

2 Samuel 1; 2:1-7  King Saul had made himself an enemy of David, trying to kill him. When Saul died, David did not celebrate, but instead, he showed respect for a man God had chosen to be king. He wrote a song of lament. David had been a warrior, and in this he chose to be a peacemaker.
