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 10:1-23
Jesus sent out the twelve to proclaim the kingdom. “You will be hated for my name, but do not fear. Whoever receives you receives me.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Genesis 29-30
Jacob worked for Laban seven years to marry Rachel, but Laban gave him Leah and made him work seven more for Rachel. Leah had sons.
Rachel’s maid had sons for Jacob, then Leah’s maid, then Leah. Finally Rachel had a son. Laban allowed Jacob flocks as wages to stay.
