Day 76

Day 76 Reading – Deuteronomy Chapters 17-20
The king, moreover, must not acquire great numbers of horses for himself or make the people return to Egypt to get more of them, for the LORD has told you, “You are not to go back that way again.” . . . . When he takes the throne of his kingdom, he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law, taken from that of the Levitical priests. It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees  Deuteronomy 17:16,18-19 NIV

God provides for that which we don’t even know we want. Before there was even a cry for a king, God provided directions for a king.

The directions apply to even us today.

Don’t go back.

That is great advice.
Like the people in the wilderness who cried out to go back to Egypt, sometimes we long for the old life – don’t go back!

To keep from going back, don’t accumulate those things that will pull you away from God.

Instead, take time to meditate on His word.

It might be good to be king, but no one said it would be easy.

Whose king of your life?

Day 77 Reading – Deuteronomy Chapters 21-23


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
