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 18: 1-17
Jesus gave parables about prayer. He told a rich man to sell everything. He said, “The Son of Man will be killed but he will rise.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Samuel 1-3
A man came and told David that Saul and Jonathan were dead. David sang: “The beauty of Israel is slain. How the mighty have fallen!”
David was made king of Judah. Abner made Ish-bosheth king of Israel. Their men fought and Abner killed Joab’s brother Asahel.
Abner argued with Ish-bosheth and offered to support David. David asked for his wife Michal. Joab killed Abner and David mourned.
