Reading for Revival Week Four--The Process

For my friends who have been corresponding with me—I did find a printable listing of the scriptures for each day on a website:

So, Week Four will find us in beginning in Exodus, and continuing in Matthew, Psalms, and Proverbs.

I glanced at the website which has lots of material each day. I have not yet even determined who puts it together, but I will be examining it from time to time for inspiration. Keeping up with the reading and finding some outside reflections on these subjects keeps me pretty busy. How about you?

I think it is good for me to stick to reading all week and posting on the weekend. I think short posts may be more readable than one long one.

I have been thinking so much about Genesis, although I have been doing the other readings, I haven’t had time to comment much on Matthew, Psalms, and Proverbs. If you are doing the readings and have something to share—questions, comments, even prayers, let me know. I’ll post your observations, too.

Themes I have been conscious of—you may have noted—are gender issues and general interpretative questions. As I read this week, I am looking out for ways God showed love and grace to the rascally people in these stories. I am also going to be doing some outside reading on the covenant to Abraham and want to write a bit more about that—because I think the love of God and the covenants made with man are the underlying messages to you and me.
