Today’s reading in the Prayer, Bible, Journal is:
Genesis 1:1-2:25 Matthew 1:1-2:12 Psalm 1:1-6 Prov 1:1-6
This reading is about Beginnings. It reaches from the power of creation in Genesis to Emmanuel… God with us in Matthew. It moves from God creating light to Jesus being born as the light of men.
Psalm 1 is also about beginnings. It speaks to people, path, and destination. Everyone is wandering somewhere in their lives, often blazing new paths, but without a destination it remains just wandering. What is your destination. God obviously had one when he said, “Let there be Light” and that destination was to a baby who was God with us. That path took God in man form to the cross.
Proverbs 1 speaks to walking that path skillfully with God.
