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 19: 1-15
Jesus was asked about divorce. He said, “Do not separate what God has joined.” He told a rich man, “Sell everything and follow me.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Exodus 13-15
The LORD told the Israelites to consecrate their firstborns to him. He guided them as a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night.
Pharaoh’s army caught the Israelites by the sea. The LORD parted the waters and the Israelites crossed. The Egyptian army was drowned.
The Israelites sang: “I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed; horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.” They camped at Elim.
