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 20: 17-34
“The kingdom is like a master paying wages.” Jesus told the disciples, “The Son of Man came to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Exodus 22-24
Whoever steals shall make restitution. If a man sleeps with a virgin he shall marry her. You shall not oppress strangers or the poor.
You shall not pervert justice. Each year you shall hold feasts. My angel will lead you and I will drive your enemies from the land.
The people said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do”, and they offered sacrifices. The LORD told Moses to stay on the mountain.
