Bible in a Year: Day 5

The Reading

  • Luke 7:18-50
  • Genesis 11:1-32
  • Psalms 5:1-12

Standout Passages

“God’s wisdom is shown to be true by all who accept it” Luke 7:35

“But Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”” Luke 7:50

 

Reflections…

It was an interesting set of readings today. Genesis was pretty-much a throwaway, being a genealogy and containing little more that I could discuss at this time. The Psalm was one that’s colored by a wish for revenge. As a pacifist it really rubs me a bit of the wrong way. Revenge is for those who do not forgive, and are we not meant to forgive?

I did find the readings from Luke to be inspiring, though. The journey through Holy Week as it descends into darkness is a difficult one (though one that makes Easter all the more meaningful). Verses about faith and wisdom are helpful right now.
