Old Testament – Today in Numbers chapter 32 verse 23 we read this strong warning from Moses to the Reubenites & Gadites about their promise to fight with Israel and their desire to settle in the land east of the Jordan river: “But if you fail to keep your word, then you will have sinned against the LORD, and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.” I think this is powerful for us to keep in mind in our lives today as well! It’s important for us to keep our word! If we’re not sure we can keep our word, we shouldn’t give it. But if we do give our word, and we fail to keep it, we have sinned. And I do believe the sin will still find us out today.
Chapter 33 is a great re-cap of Israel’s journey! Check out a great map of Israel’s journey and commentary at this link. And another full sized map of Israel’s journey is at this link, and a smaller sized map is below:
New Testament – In Luke chapter 5 verses 10 & 11 we read – “From now on you’ll be fishing for people!” And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus.”
Bible.org’s commentary on Luke chapter 4’s readings today titled “Deity Confronts the Demons” is at this link and commentary on chapter 5’s readings today entitled “How to Hook a Fisherman” is at this link.
Psalms – Psalm 64 verse 10 is beautiful – “The godly will rejoice in the LORD and find shelter in him.”
Bible.org’s commentary on Psalm 64 titled “A Prayer for Protection from the Conspiracy of Terror”is at this link.
Proverbs – Proverbs 11:22 today teaches us – “A woman who is beautiful but lacks discretion is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout.” I think this Proverb can apply to men too. I think we are all beautiful, as sons & daughters of God! We are made in the image of God. And when we lack discretion in our God-given lives, then we indeed are like this image below!
Please join us in memorizing and meditating on two verses of Scripture today: “Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.” Luke 5:10-11 NIV
