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 7
“Do not judge others. Do to others what you would have them do to you. Whoever obeys is like a man who built his house on the rock.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Genesis 20-22
In Gerar Abraham said, “Sarah is my sister.” King Abimelech took her but God warned him in a dream. He restored Sarah to Abraham.
As promised, Sarah had a son: Isaac. She had Hagar and Ishmael sent away but God preserved them. Abraham and Abimelech made a treaty.
God told Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. As Abraham obeyed, an angel stopped him. The LORD provided a ram instead and blessed Abraham.
