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 14: 22-36
Herod had John the Baptist killed. Jesus fed 5,000 men with five loaves and two fish. Jesus came to the disciples walking on the sea.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Genesis 46-48
So Israel set out with all his household. God told him not to be afraid. Israel and all his family came to Egypt and Joseph met him.
Pharaoh allowed Joseph’s family to settle in Goshen. The famine continued and the Egyptians sold all they had to Pharaoh for food.
Jacob became ill, so Joseph took his sons to see him. Jacob blessed Joseph’s sons as his own, putting Ephraim ahead of Manasseh.
