READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (9/2)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Ecclesiastes 1:1-3:22  Apart from God, life is empty and unsatisfying.  Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. (12:13)  King Solomon, the son of great King David, pursues worldly pleasures.  At last, He realizes and laments life’s fleeting nature and its inequities, “Learning, pleasure, work, laughter–all is vanity.  People live, work hard, and die, only to leave their belongings to someone else; the wicked prosper over the righteous, the poor are oppressed.”  King Solomon concludes, “Fear God and keep His Commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” (12:13)

2 Corinthians 6:1-13  Apostle Paul fervently addresses the fence-sitters of the Corinthian Church–those not yet born-again–to open their hearts and accept God.  God’s power is working in us … We serve God whether people honor, despise, slander, or praise us … We have been beaten but we have not been killed.  Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others …  Oh, dear Corinthian friends! We have spoken honestly with you, and our hearts are open to you. There is no lack of love on our part, but you have withheld your love from us.  I am asking you to respond as if you were my own children. Open your hearts to us!

Psalm 46:1-11  The God of Israel is our fortress.  The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us.  God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.  So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.  Let the oceans roar and foam.  Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!  “Be still, and know that I am God!  I will be honored by every nation.  I will be honored throughout the world.”

Proverbs 22:15  Spare the rod, spoil the child.  A youngster’s heart is filled with foolishness,  but physical discipline will drive it far away.  (Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. [Proverbs 13:24])
