It comes true now and then.
I get to sleep with my best friend.
Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20, Luke 11:37-12:7, Psalm 78:1-31, Proverbs 12:19-20
Moses gets his last talk with the Israelites. The Lord has revealed to him that they will stray from him and be banished from the land. He tells Moses this before they even enter the Promised Land.
It must be a heartbreaking way to end one's journey leading God's people. To know that it will be unsuccessful in the end.
So Moses gives a long talk about how much they will be cursed if they reject God, and he reminds them that God will bring them back and bless them if they return to God after their sinfulness.
Jesus takes it to those Pharisees. They're good at all the rules, but they miss the heart of the faith. And, because of that, their rules are misguided too. They'd kill somebody if they could get away with it. Oh, wait...
Everyone who turns his back on God fails. That is all you need to know for now.
Isn't it comforting to know that truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are revealed?
We've all been lied to. And everyone else lied to as a cover-up. Which makes us look bad. But God promises that the lies will be soon exposed.
Praise God for truth. Let's choose nothing else.
The Readings...On Video(s)!!
So this didn't work too well. Had to shoot four parts, which I spliced into three. But it makes for great videos, because this encompasses Daddy/Luke time and bathtime. Some of the shots are priceless.
And just the audio, if you're into that sort of thing:
