90 Day Bible Reading-Day 12-13

I knew it would be easier when the kids were home and on Christmas vacation, but I am pathetic.  I’m doing my readings, but can’t squeeze out more time to blog about it in depth.  So here’s another overview…

NUMBERS 27 – DEUTERONOMY 16

Continues with laws and offerings in which Joshua will have to see to it the Israelites follow, since Moses is going to be “gathered to his people.”  I liked all of the sacred assemblies, festivals, and doing no regular work.  That’s something I’d be OK with keeping from the OT. 

They killed all of the men in the Midianite tribe with the help of the Lord, and brought the women, children and animals back to Moses.  Moses ordered them to kill all the boys, and women who have slept with a man.  They divided what was brought back.  Boundaries were set for the land of Canaan, with a place for the Levites, where 6 of the cities were designated at Cities of Refuge.  It talks about the act of murder, and if it is intentional, then that person shall be put to death.  That could spark some heated debates, so I’m not touching it!

In Deuteronomy, Moses tells the people what God has shared with him.  He also recants some of the happenings along the journey.  How the Israelites were grumbling, and rebellious too.  Moses reviews the laws and commandments.  Deuteronomy 6:5  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  God promises in Chapter 11, verse 14 to send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.  Chapter 14 talks about tithes, and setting aside a tenth of all that the fields produced each year.  I really like Chapter 15 also.  It says that at the end of every 7 years, all debts must be cancelled.  No more house payment would be pretty nice! 

I hope you’ve done your readings, and can follow what I shared.  Tomorrow is Deuteronomy 17-29.  Happy reading, and God Bless You.
