TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Song of Solomon 1:1-4:16  King Solomon and His New Bride Rejoice in Their Love.  Solomon, a son of King David became king.  While visiting a vineyard, Solomon is swept away by the young peasant woman working the vines.  The king seeks the woman’s hand in marriage.  Casting her insecurities aside, she eventually consents.  Solomon’s wife longed for the security of his presence.  The basis of true love is commitment.  A relationship built on true love is void of deceit, manipulation, or exploitation.   

2 Corinthians 8:16-24  Apostle Paul Sends Cohort, Titus, to Receive Collection from the Corinthian Congregation.  Following the Lord’s examples, Christians are called to be generous; a stingy Christian should be extinct; however, sacrificial giving must be responsible.  Give until it hurts but not to the point where it hurts the financial needs of your family and relatives. Paul used every safeguard to maintain integrity in the collection of money for the Jerusalem church.  Christians must have the highest standard of financial responsibility.

Psalm 50:1-23  WISDOM: TO FEAR AND HONOR GOD.  Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:  Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.

Proverbs 22:22-23  Advocate for the poor.  Do not exploit the poor because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court, for the Lord will take up their case and will exact life for life.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (8/17)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Nehemiah 12:27-13:31  Dedication of Jerusalem’s Wall and Provision for Temple Worship

The rebuilding of the wall was not simply about brick and mortar but about reestablishing the Lord’s sovereignty.  The Levites exuberantly carried out the worship. That day they offered great sacrifices because God had filled them with great joy The women and children raised their happy voices with all the rest.  Jerusalem’s jubilation was heard far and wide. Judah was so appreciative of the priests and Levites and their service … conducting the worship of their God and the ritual of ceremonial cleansing in a way that would have made Kings David and his son Solomon proud.

1 Corinthians 11:1-16  Instructions for Public Worship – Don’t, by the way, read too much into the differences here between men and women. Neither man nor woman can go it alone or claim priority. Man was created first, as a beautiful shining reflection of God — that is true. But the head on a woman’s body clearly outshines in beauty the head of her “head,” her husband. The first woman came from man, true — but ever since then, every man comes from a woman! And since virtually everything comes from God let’s quit going through these “who’s first” routines.

Psalm 35:1-16  King David cries out to God for deliverance from his oppressors, “Lord, who can compare with you? Who else rescues the helpless from the strong? Who else protects the helpless and poor from those who rob them?”

Proverbs 21:17-18  Those who love pleasure become poor.  The wicked are punished.
