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 15: 1-20
Jesus challenged the Pharisees about tradition. He healed a Canaanite woman’s daughter. He taught on the mountain and fed 4,000 men.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Genesis 49-50
Jacob gathered his sons and blessed each of them. He charged them to bury him with Abraham in the cave in Canaan, and then he died.
Pharaoh allowed Joseph to go and bury Jacob. Before Joseph died, he said that God would lead his people back to the promised land.
