I may be jumping the gun here. It is the third day but I have as yet read today's readings. So far I have read Genesis 1-4:25, Matthew 1-3:6, Psalm 1 &2 and Proverbs 1:1-9. None of this is new scripture to me.
I've decided that every day I must underline something from the day's readings. I am trying to be a little investigative and thoughtful here. So far I have these comments.
Day 1 Matthew 1:24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him. I don't know that the angel of the Lord has ever commanded me but God has certainly commanded me to do things. Sometimes rather than command He has given me some excellent ideas. I rarely wake up in the morning and do them. I should work on that.
Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law he meditates day and night. I can see this happening with this year's project. I am excited!
Proverbs 1:5 let the wise listen and add to their learning and let the discerning get guidance. good ideas.
Day 2 Genesis 3:22 He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take from teh tree of life and eat, and live forever. Just today, at church we discussed how our inheritance is eternal life. Then why didn'g God want us to eat of the tree in the garden? Ah, sin. If Adam had eaten from the tree he would have had eternal life separated from God better to wait for our redemption in Christ.
Genesis 4:7 If you do not do what is right, sin, is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it.
This is a awesome picture to keep in mind as I leave the house each day.
