August 3 Bible reading

3 08 2022

August 3 Psalm 90:11-17 Romans 16 1 Chronicles 15: 16:1-36

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?

August 3 Psalm 90:11-17 Romans 16 1 Chronicles 15: 16:1-36

Psalm 90:11-17

Life is short. May God help us learn to live with priority on what lasts forever. Through the good days and the bad, may we be satisfied by the unfailing love of God, singing with joy. We should start each day focused on the love of God. We can learn to have a positive focus without living in a fantasy land. We should realize that God has given us the opportunity of today. Let’s make the most of it. Each day is a gift.

Romans 16

Paul writes with love and respect for the Roman church at large and appreciation for certain servant leaders in particular. We observe a high value on long term relationships. Paul and the appointed apostles were careful to teach from what Jesus instructed them to. There were other people who taught things contrary to this truth, out of selfish interests. Such teachers deceive people. Paul advises the Roman church to watch out for this and avoid it. God will soon defeat our enemy. God is able to strengthen us.

1 Chronicles 15: 16:1-36

David set up a new place of worship, that would be temporary, carefully following God’s instructions. Moving in the Ark of the Covenant, King David had dedicated priests to handle the process and sing joy for the restoration of God’s presence in Jerusalem. King David directed the thanksgiving to God with laughter in joy as they initiated this new space.
