Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Sin is nothing new. The candor of the Scriptures allows us to see the stupidity and rebelliousness of God's people in the past. We should be convicted by their lost opportunities and the disasters they brought upon themselves and not repeat their mistakes, rebelliousness, and sin. We should also be reminded how little difference there often is between them and us and renew our passion to follow God more faithfully!

My Prayer...

Father, I know my sin, rebellion, and unfaithfulness have hurt you and your cause in my time as much as the sins of those in the Bible hurt your cause and people in the past. Please forgive and strengthen me as I seek to live a life holy and pleasing to you and a blessing to those around me. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
