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?

August 6 Psalm 91:9-16 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 1 Chronicles 22:2-19; 23
Psalm 91:9-16 As we make God our safe place, we will not be overcome by the evil of this world. When we call on God, He will answer. God will rescue those who love Him. God will be with people who trust in Him. This is truth that is worth spending time to reflect on today.
1 Corinthians 2:6-16 Paul’s teaching in Corinth was focused on Jesus who was crucified. Paul taught simply and in humility so that they would trust in the power of God revealed in this Good News. The Holy Spirit gives people the ability to receive and understand this Good News of Jesus. We must grow into a life that is more Christ-centered.
1 Chronicles 22:2-19; 23 An aging King David obeys God’s instruction to set up his son Solomon to build the Temple so that the place of worship would no longer need to be carried from place to place. David instructs Solomon to seek God with all his heart and soul. obeying God’s instructions, and encouraging him to be courageous. At all times, people could be found serving in the Lord’s presence. Let us learn from David and seek God with all our heart and soul.
