Day 6

Old Testament: Genesis 16, 17, 18
New Testament: Matthew 6

Thoughts from today’s reading

Genesis 18:17-19. God was able to share His plans with Abraham because he was great at training the people in his house to follow Gods ways. He knew Abraham would take a duty to pray for others to come to a place of righteousness.

Matthew 6:25-26. God says we are of more value than the birds and the flowers. They put in no effort to get their food or clothing, how much more will He not take care of us.

Prayers

  1. Let us take time to pray for the mercy of God to touch those around us with a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
  2. Thank God that He counts us of more value than the birds of the air and flowers of the field, if He provides for them, how much more will He provide for us.
