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: Acts 7: 1-19
Stephen said, “Brothers, God called Abraham and appeared to Moses. You killed the Righteous One.” They were enraged and stoned him.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Job 1-3
Job was blameless. The LORD allowed Satan to test him. Job’s servants and children were killed. He tore his robes and worshipped.
Satan struck Job with boils. Job’s wife told him to curse God. But Job did not sin. Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar came to comfort him.
Job said, “Curse the day I was born! Why did I not die at birth? Why is light given to him who suffers? I have no rest, only turmoil.”
