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 9: 37-62
Jesus sent out the twelve. He fed 5,000 men. Peter said, “You are the Christ.” Jesus said, “Take up your cross.” He was transfigured.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Judges 12-14
The Ephraimites attacked Jephthah. Jephthah and the Gileadites defeated them and caught survivors by making them say ‘Shibboleth’.
The LORD gave Israel to the Philistines. The angel of the LORD told Manoah’s wife that she would conceive. She named her son Samson.
Samson took a Philistine wife. He killed a lion and bees made honey in the carcass. He posed a riddle but his wife explained it.
