Day 97: September 17, 2012- Snapshot of Love

Snapshot of Love.

There's no one quite like you.

The Readings.

Deuteronomy 31:1-32:27, Luke 12:8-34, Psalm 78:32-55, Proverbs 12:21-23

Old Testament.
Moses raises up Joshua to succeed him. And then he sings a prophetic song to the Israelites. Beforehand, he tells them that they will forsake the Lord and be punished for it.

I don't understand how they are unresponsive. Wouldn't you be alarmed and do whatever it took to prevent it?

It is sadly ironic that after all Moses has done to lead Israel to God's promised land, he basically has to tell them that they will go back into exile before he dies.

Ugh. Let us whole-heartedly devote ourselves to the Lord.

New Testament.
Jesus says if you don't stand up for him, he won't stand up for you. But he also won't get into the civil issues that people try to drag him into. He's focused on the kingdom.

God stuck up for the Israelites with twelve plagues. They still rebelled. But this Psalm is a good reminder.

God delights those who tell the truth. The wicked have trouble. Good proverbs to check out today. Refreshing, for those who love God.
