Day 34: July 16, 2012- Jesus Pulls No Punches

Update on the Little Person.

Luke's been a little fussy in the evenings. I don't know what it is. He's getting bigger, being fed, seems to be loved, usually has semi-clean diapers, and Daddy runs through the sprinklers with him.

So, everything should be good, right?

Well, he's being rocked by Mommy now. And he usually gets put down at this time. (Funny how people say it that way.)

But sometimes he's a little fuss monster. And then he does that pretending to fall asleep thing and bam! His eyes pop open again. That's the worst. It can go on as long as he has an audience.

Still, he's one cute kid when he's looking around or staring up into our eyes in wide-eyed amazement.

And we love him like crazy.


Seems alright to me.

Yep, nothing to see here.

The Readings:

Exodus 17:8-19:15, Matthew 22:34-23:12, Psalm 27:7-14, Proverbs 6:27-35

Old Testament.
Sometimes God values some good old ingenuity. Jethro, Moses' father in law comes up with a great idea to reorganize Israel's judging system, and then Aaron, Hur, and Moses come up with another one in the battle against the Amalekites. Sometimes God speaks to us through great ideas. So think! You never know, what you come up with might be wisdom.

New Testament.
Jesus will answer your question. Then he'll ask you one. He'll leave you walking away saying, "I'm not gonna ask that guy another question again.."

He had no qualms being bold with his answers and plain about what he stood for. Neither should we.

David's heart is so genuine. It just makes me want to go for a prayer walk or sit and talk to God. He loves God so much. And nothing's going to keep him from being faithful and pure.

May we have the same attitude before him. It matters and he notices!

Stay away from other people's husbands and wives. There's something very sacred there. And if you don't think so, the husband or wife will prove it to you.

Enjoy the readings! God bless everyone who is taking the journey with us. Leave a comment and let us know how you're doing and what God is showing you!

  3. You're welcome guys! It's been fun. I'm looking forward to what more surprises and twists in the road this year holds. We'll try to get Luke more involved as he learns to use syllables. It's a complex concept.
