TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Job 4:1-7:21  Job’s friends give him plenty of bad advice. They mistakenly blame his sufferings–Job’s dead workers, dead animals, and illness–on his personal sins rather than God testing and growing Job.  Job cries out to God, “If I have sinned, what have I done to you?  Why make me your target?   Why not just forgive my sin and take away my guilt?  For soon I will lie down in the dust and die.   When you look for me, I will be gone.”

1 Corinthians 14:18-40  Apostle Paul encourages Christians, “My dear brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and don’t forbid speaking in tongues.  But be sure that everything is done properly and in order.”

Psalm 37:30-40  Look at those who are honest and good, for a wonderful future awaits those who love peace.  But the rebellious will be destroyed; they have no future.

Proverbs 21:27  The sacrifice of an evil person is detestable, especially when offered with wrong motives.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (8/21)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Job 1:1-3:26    The Book of Job illustrates God’s sovereignty and faithfulness during a time of great suffering.  God tests Job’s faithfulness by allowing Satan to attack him. God told Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him” (1:12). Through Job’s trials, all is lost including his dead workers and farm animals, and his health.  Wife tells Job to curse God and commit suicide but he remains strong and faithful. “Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God” (1:22).

1 Corinthians 14:1-17  Apostle Paul clears up some of the confusion about practices of worship. He corrects difficult doctrines that had caused divisions–the use of spiritual gifts, and observing the Lord’s Supper. “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints” (14:33).  Paul also teaches, “Desire the gift of prophesy more than speaking in tongues for one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.  Let love be your highest goal!” (14:1)

Psalm 37:12-29  The Lord just laughs [at the evil doers]  for he sees their day of judgment coming. (37:13)   It is better to be godly and have little than to be evil and rich.  For the strength of the wicked will be shattered but the Lord takes care of the godly. (37:16-17)

Proverbs 21:25-26  Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work.  Some people are always greedy for more but the godly love to give!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Esther 8:1-10:3  The Festival of Purim celebrates Queen Esther’s courage for saving her people.  Haman, the king’s high official, is hung by King Ahasuerus’ (Xerxes) men for plotting to kill the Jews, Queen Esther’s people.  The king gave Haman’s property to Esther.  He also issued a decree, allowing the Jews to unite to defend themselves.  Mordecai, the queen’s uncle, is appointed prime minister of Persia.  He was highly regarded by the Jewish people for serving and representing the people’s best interests.

1 Corinthians 12:27-13:13  If I do not have love, I gain nothing.  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Psalm 37:1-11  Trust in the Lord and do good … and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret —it leads only to evil.  For those who are evil will be destroyed but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.  A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.

Proverbs 21:23-24  Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity.  The proud and arrogant—“Mocker”—behaves with insolent fury.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Esther 4:1-7:10  Queen Esther’s uncle, Mordecai, hears Haman’s plot to destroy all the Jews in Persia.  The queen outwits Haman, the king’s high official, and pleas to husband, King Ahasuerus, to protect the Jewish people from Haman’s wicked plan.  The king has Haman hung on the gallows Haman himself built to destroy the Jews.  Esther’s faith and courage saves her people.

1 Corinthians 12:1-26   It is the same God who does the work in all of us.  A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.  It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.  The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ.  If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad.

Psalm 36:1-12  God is loving, faithful, and just.  God detests evil and will defeat evil in His time.

Proverbs 21:21-22  Whoever pursues righteousness and unfailing love will find life, righteousness, and honor.

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.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (8/16)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Nehemiah 11:1-12:26  The rebuilding of the wall was not simply about brick and mortar but about reestablishing the Lord’s sovereignty. The people (Jews) commended all volunteers; those who helped restore the walls of Jerusalem and resettled there.  The Jewish leaders lived in Jerusalem, the holy city. A tenth of the people from the other towns of Judah and Benjamin were chosen by sacred lots to live there, too, while the rest stayed where they were.
1 Corinthians 10:14-33  Apostle Paul warns believers to flee idolatry — that which we desire other than the Lord (power, money, status, pride, etc.).  You cannot please God and the devil.  Do not eat food offered to idols.
Psalm 34:11-22  Turn away from evil and do good.  The righteous person faces many troubles,  but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.  The Lord will redeem those who serve Him.  No one who takes refuge in Him will be condemned.
Proverbs 21:14-16  A quietly given gift soothes an irritable person;   a heartfelt present cools a hot temper. Justice is a joy to the godly, but terrifies evildoers.  (NLT)   The person who strays from common sense will end up in the company of the dead.  (NLT)
