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 10:24-42
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 31-32
The Lord told Jacob to return home. Jacob left in secret and Rachel took Laban’s idols. Laban chased Jacob but they made a treaty.
Jacob heard that Esau was coming to meet him. He was afraid and sent gifts. That night he wrestled with a man who renamed him Israel.
