February 18 + Daily readings

DAY 49

It's a light reading day!  We're learning about more offerings and what to do when your wife makes a hasty purchase--maybe that's what it means 😉

DAILY READINGS

Numbers 28-30 & Psalm 49

DAILY NOTES

Numbers 28
  • Prescribed daily offerings, sabbath offerings, monthly offerings, passover offerings and offerings for the festival of weeks.
Numbers 29
  • Prescribed offerings for festival of trumpets, day of atonement, festival of booths.
Numbers 30
  • Jesus once said, "Let your 'yes' be 'yes' and your 'no' be 'no."  Vows are important to the people of God.  The whole story we're reading is based on a vow/promise from God.  
  • This chapter deals with the vows a man makes; he should keep them.  Mostly, though, the chapter deals with the vows made by a daughter or wife.  The father/husband was given authority to decide whether any vows or rash decisions made by her were to be kept or not.
Psalm 49
  • People have trusted in their wealth for a long time.  
  • No matter what earthly goods you accumulate, none of it is carried into eternity with you.
  • I like how The Message Bible translates Verse 20: We aren’t immortal. We don’t last long.
    Like our dogs, we age and weaken. And die.

These are the kinds of question to ask yourself as you study and read the Bible.  You'll be joining a thousands-year-old conversation.   DAILY READINGSGenesis 32-34 & Psalm 10 DAILY NOTES Genesis 32:1-6
God sent messengers (angels) to Jacob. Jacob sent messengers to Esau.Jacob's message to Esau seems to be something like, "I haven't had it all good, but here are some things I have for you. Don't be mad."The messengers do not give any indication of Esau's attitude.   Genesis 32:7-12 It's been said that Jacob prepared for three t…
