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 6: 45-71
Jesus fed 5,000 men and walked across the sea. He said, “I am the bread of life. My flesh is true food.” Many disciples turned back.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Kings 20-22
Hezekiah was sick but the LORD extended his life. Envoys came from Babylon. Isaiah told Hezekiah, “Everything will be taken away.”
Manasseh ruled in Jerusalem and did evil. The LORD said, “I will bring disaster on Jerusalem and Judah.” Amon ruled and did evil.
Josiah ruled and did right. He had the law read out and tore his robes. Huldah said, “The LORD says: You will be buried in peace.”
