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: 16-30
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 16-18
The Israelites grumbled to Moses that they had no food, so each day the LORD provided quails and manna. They rested on the sabbath.
The LORD told Moses to strike a rock to provide water. Amalek attacked Israel, but as Moses held up his arms Joshua’s army prevailed.
Moses’ father-in-law Jethro came and offered sacrifices to God. He suggested that Moses appoint leaders to help him judge the people.
