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 16: 1-18
“A shrewd manager reduced his master’s bills before he was fired. Abraham would not send Lazarus to comfort a rich man in Hades.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 1 Samuel 22-24
About four hundred men joined David. Saul ordered that all the priests be killed because they helped David. Only Abiathar escaped.
David and his men saved Keilah from the Philistines. Saul came to Keilah so David escaped. Saul gave chase but he was called away.
Saul went after David. David cut off a piece of Saul’s robe but spared his life. Saul wept and said, “You shall surely be king.”
