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: 21-39
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: Exodus 1-3
The Israelites prospered in Egypt, but a new king arose and forced them into hard labour. He commanded that their baby boys be killed.
Pharaoh’s daughter found a Hebrew baby by the river. She named him Moses. When he grew up, Moses killed an Egyptian and fled to Midian.
Moses saw a burning bush. God told him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses asked God his name and God said, “I am who I am.”
