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: John 5: 25-47
Jesus healed a man at Bethesda. He said, “The Son only does what he sees the Father doing. My works and the Scriptures bear witness.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Kings 12-14
Joash ruled in Jerusalem and did what was right. The priests collected money to repair the temple. Joash was killed by his servants.
Jehoahaz ruled Israel and they were oppressed by Hazael. Jehoash ruled and Elisha told him to strike the ground. Then Elisha died.
Amaziah ruled Judah and did right. He challenged Jehoash but Judah were defeated. Jeroboam ruled Israel and restored the borders.
