August 11 Psalm 94:12-23 1 Corinthians 7:1-16 Ecclesiastes 1; 2; 3

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?

August 11 Psalm 94:12-23 1 Corinthians 7:1-16 Ecclesiastes 1; 2; 3
Psalm 94:12-23 We can limit the consequences of mistakes that bring troubled times if we follow God’s instructions for life. We learn by following God’s guidance for how we should live and accepting His correction of how we should not be living. In this, we can learn how to limit mistakes and receive God’s help in a greater ability to do so. This happens at the same time we focus our attention on the goodness of God and think through how we can respond to God in healthy ways.
1 Corinthians 7:1-16 In 1 Corinthians, we find teaching about marriage. God gives some people the gift of marriage and others the gift of being single. God has designed each of us with a purpose in mind. Our sexual desire may be fulfilled in a marriage where love is given as a gift given by each person to their spouse. Choosing a lifelong commitment in marriage can reflect the love that God has for us. It can be beautiful, meaningful, fulfilling, and life-giving.
Ecclesiastes 1; 2; 3 Solomon could not find ultimate satisfaction in hard work, learning, or the pursuit of pleasure. For a time, he turned from the worship of God. We are given this example to learn from. It can help us avoid Solomon’s mistake.
