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: Mark 7: 14-37
The Pharisees questioned Jesus about tradition. He said, “Evil comes from within.” He delivered a Gentile girl and healed a deaf man.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Numbers 21-22
The people grumbled so the LORD sent snakes. Moses made a bronze snake and whoever looked at it lived. Israel defeated the Amorites.
Balak sent for Balaam to curse Israel. Balaam’s donkey warned him. The Angel of the LORD said, “Go, but speak only what I tell you.”
