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 8: 22-56
Jesus told a parable about a sower. He explained it to his disciples. He calmed a storm, delivered a man and healed Jairus’ daughter.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Judges 8-9
Gideon defeated Zebah and Zalmunna and punished Succoth and Penuel. He refused to rule Israel. When Gideon died Israel served Baals.
Abimelech killed his brothers and ruled over Israel. Gaal rose against him. Abimelech destroyed Shechem but was killed by a millstone.
