Old Testament Reading; Leviticus 19:1-20:27
Here the Bible goes through various laws and punishment for sin.
A phrase that is repeated throughout these chapters is;
19:1-2 “The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them; “Be holy because I, the Lord your God am holy.”
Kimberly’s thoughts; I am trying to be a better steward of all the blessings God has given me, to honor Him this Lent season. Yesterday, only two days into Lent, I failed miserably. To be Holy, as God is Holy, is difficult. I am thankful for the forgiveness Jesus provides every moment of every day! One of the reasons I am failing at my desires is that my goal of being a better steward is too vague. Today, I am readjusting the wording of my Lent goal. I will stick to my budget. I will eat foods that are healthful and only one normal size treat a day. We all have a better chance of obtaining our goals if they are clearly worded.
New Testament; Mark 14:17-42
During these verses Peter denies Jesus three times.
Kimberly’s thoughts; Jesus knew Peter would do this. Jesus loves Peter anyway.
9”Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.”
