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: Luke 2: 25-52
Mary gave birth in Bethlehem. Angels sent shepherds to see the child. Jesus was presented at the temple. He grew in wisdom and stature.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Joshua 7-8
Achan took some banned items. When the army went against Ai they were defeated. The LORD identified Achan and the people stoned him.
The LORD told Joshua to take the army against Ai. They set up an ambush and destroyed the city. Joshua read out the book of the law.
