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: 1 Thessalonians 3
We sent Timothy to strengthen you. We warned you that persecution would come. We are encouraged by your faith. May you grow in love.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Isaiah 56-58
Keep justice, for salvation is near. I will bring the outcasts of Israel to my house and gather still others. The watchmen are blind.
The righteous find peace in death. As for you rebels, you make your bed wide. Let your idols save you! But I will not accuse forever.
You seek pleasure on your fast days. Is this not the fast I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice? Then your ruins will be rebuilt.
