In the morning let us prepare for the new day with the words of the New Testament and in the evening let us reflect on how God moves in the lives of his people.
Morning Reading from the New Testament: Matthew 5:1-26
Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart. I have come to fulfil the law. Whoever is angry will be judged. I say, love your enemies.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Genesis 12-14
God told Abram, “Go. I will make you a great nation. You will be a blessing.” In Egypt Abram lied about Sarai and Pharaoh was cursed.
Abram journeyed with his nephew Lot. Their servants argued, so Lot went to Sodom, Abram to Canaan. The LORD promised Abram the land.
The kings went to war and took Lot captive. Abram rescued Lot. Melchizedek blessed Abram and Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
