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 😉


Numbers 28-30 & Psalm 49


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.
