April 30 Bible reading

30 04 2021

April 30 Proverbs 10:31-32; 11:1-8 John 1:29-51 Joshua 17; 18

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 the 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?

April 30 Proverbs 10:31-32; 11:1-8 John 1:29-51 Joshua 17; 18

Proverbs 10:31-32; 11:1-8

People, who are learning from their relationship with God, can give helpful perspective and suggestions for healthy next steps. Thinking you have it all figured out is dangerous. A humble approach will bring you wisdom.

John 1:29-51

John “the Baptist” publicly announced the identity of Jesus as the “Messiah”, the predicted Savior. Andrew had been following John. He heard John’s statement and in turn grabbed his brother Peter so that they could follow Jesus together. Philip was from Andrew & Peter’s hometown. He grabbed Nathanael and they also followed Jesus. God cares about our personal relationships. As we receive the love of Jesus we should be motivated to share it with the people in our lives.

Joshua 17; 18

The tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh are given extra land due to their size. They are given permission to clear trees and settle as much of the forests of the hill country as they wanted. Our God cares about healthy peaceful relationships and the practical necessities.
