Day 29: July 11, 2012- The Plagues of Egypt

The Readings:

Exodus 8-9:35, Matthew 19:13-30, Psalm 24: 1-10, Proverbs 6:1-5

Old Testament.
An epic story unfolds. Moses and Pharaoh and the twelve plagues of Egypt. May we never harden our hearts to what God is doing in our lives.

New Testament.
Jesus brings the children to him, and he defines heaven by them. Let's remember to be children. Breathe in. Breathe out. God is God. And we are in his hands. It's a good place to rest and just love him.

Who may enter his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart and does not lift up his soul to what is false. There's a reason you were baptized long ago. To begin unstained by the world, to wash you clean from it. God wants us to maintain clean hands and a pure heart before him. And if you find yourself dirty, let the Word today wash you.

Ever make a dumb commitment? Say you'll do something unreasonable? Go right to the person and ask forgiveness and get out of it. Don't let yourself be strung along trying to finish something you can't possibly do, or fail someone who is depending on you.
