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 12: 1-34
Jesus said, “Even the hairs of your head are numbered. Sell your possessions. Be ready for the Son of Man. I came to bring division.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 1 Samuel 1-3
Hannah had no children. She cried out to the LORD, “Remember your servant.” She bore a son, Samuel, and took him to Eli the priest.
Hannah prayed, “The LORD humbles and lifts up.” Eli’s sons did evil but Samuel served the LORD. A prophet condemned the house of Eli.
The LORD called Samuel. Eli told Samuel to answer, “Speak, LORD.” The LORD told Samuel that he was about to judge the house of Eli.
