Reflections on My Daily Bible Reading Saturday, May 8, 2010

Today’s Reading: Luke 1-2

Things to remember in today’s reading:

  • The unique way in which Luke introduces his gospel. The prologue is a single sentence, comprising verses 1-4 and “demonstrates Luke’s skill as a writer,” The ESV Study Bible says also it “ranks among the finest Greek writing of the first century.”
  • Luke’s purpose in writing these things was that Theophilus might know the certainty of what has been taught about Jesus.

Things God is teaching me in today’s reading:

  • Though my children may not have as special and unique a role as did John and Jesus, I need to be open to the calling of God in their lives.
  • My role as a parent is to help my children grow and become strong in the spirit.

Things to act on in today’s reading:

  • I will model good Bible study habits before my sons
  • Our family circle will be unbroken as we jointly pray to our Father
  • My son’s friends will see a home in which “the father is true and strong … where the mother in queenly quest, strives to show others God’s way is best … where the children are led to know Christ in His beauty who loves them so …”

Things to pray about in today’s reading:

  • God give us Christian homes!
  • Help me appreciate my sons and the time I have with them.
  • Give me patience and wisdom to mold them into Christian men to be spiritual leaders of their families.

Thanks for reading with me dear friend. Have a blessed day!
