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 20: 1-26
The elders questioned Jesus’ authority. Jesus said, “A man’s tenants killed his son.” So they asked about taxes and the resurrection.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Samuel 13-14
David’s son Amnon sent for his sister Tamar and raped her. Tamar’s brother Absalom had his servants kill Amnon and then he fled.
Joab sent a wise woman to ask David to bring Absalom back. David agreed, but he would not let Absalom see his face for two years.
