    In Exodus we have come to the giving of the Law.

    In Matthew Jesus forsakes His earthly family for the family of faith.

    Paul, what a rabble rouser! What a trouble-maker! He just thinks he's so right all the time! We need peace in the church, not all this turmoil! And look at how poor Sosthenes suffered all because of Paul!

    No doubt Aaron! I think Judas would have been a much better choice for church planting. I mean- he was very good handling money. He usually had a calm demanor, and he definitely didn't have such a tendancy to cause riots! ;) :eek: :D

    And the Isrealites keep grumbling. "We should have stayed in Egypt" is almost a mantra for them!
    What do you glean from chapter 16 & 17 of Genesis tonight? For me, it is that the Lord will provide for His own. Crossreference the Gospel of John chapter 6 and see that Christ refers to Himself as the "Bread of Heaven" as well. Just as God provided for the Isrealite's physiacl need, He also provides for our spiritual needs. Also in Chapter 17, the rock from which the Lord supplies water, I would recommend using a concordance and seeing how many times the word "rock" appears in the scriptures. Biblical Word Search
    Also in chapter 17, keep your eye on Joshua as we go. This is far from his last victory.
    I have always really liked chapter 18. There are two lessons there for me. 1) That those in authority need to learn to delegate; and 2) even though Moses was the highest authority present, he still listened to advice from his father-in-law.

    I like the "red text" in Acts tonight. "Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city."
    This text speaks to me personally often right through 2 milleniums.

    I hope for additional comments in the morning. I hope you feel better, Brother John.

    May God bless you

    - Clint

    God really stressed how we should get along with others in Exodus 20.

    Commandments 1-4 are toward God.
    Commandments 5-10 are toward man.

    I have a question and please don't stone me. It is just a thought I had while reading. :eek:

    "And he (Apollos) began to speak boldly in the synagogue; whom, when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, THEY took him unto them and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly." Acts 18:26

    Could this possibly mean that Priscilla had a hand in instructing Apollos along with Aquila?

    :confused: Oops! :confused:
    I just noticed that I am reading a day ahead on the scriptures. Sorry. [​IMG]

    That's OK Sue. [​IMG] I'm glad you decided to join in. I wasn't here last year to go through it, but I have really enjoyed reading the comments from last year. I'll try to comment occationally when I have time. I know there are several others reading along, so keep it up. I've enjoyed reading your posts in the other forums.

    Thanks for your kind words Rod: [​IMG]

    I wasn't here last year either and I just started this year a few days ago. I try to read the Bible from front to back each year; but I am enjoying this schedule.

    I won't post tomorrow since I am already a day ahead. :confused: I guess that's better than being a day behind though. [​IMG]

    Clint : Thanks for such a thorough answer to my question. I thought I had read it correctly, but it's always nice to have some solid back-up. :D
