Old Testament Reading; Exodus 37:1-38:31
This is the continuation of description in much detail about the extravagant care they put into the Sanctuary, The tent of Meeting.
New Testament; Mark 8:14-9:1
8:34 “Then He called the crowd to Him along with His disciples and said: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. 36What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? 37Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? 38If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
Kimberly’s thought’s; what a powerful chapter!!! In today’s times it is easy to coward a bit when talking about the Lord. There is an anti-Christians theme in our society. The ungodly are not acknowledging their sin as sin. They are declaring their sin as reasonable behavior and acceptable to teach to children. If a Christian speaks out against such things as adultery, drunkenness, abortion, premarital sex and debt we are called unloving. Personally, I prefer to be rejected by man then to be rejected by God.
6:6 “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! 7It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.”
