Day 23: 342 days left…94 books to go!

Exodus 12:31-14:4   The Exodus
  • Finally...perseverance & faith pay off..."During the night Pharoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, 'Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites!  Go, worship the LORD as you have requested.  Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go.  And also bless me."  Chapter 12, Verses 31 & 32  Up! & Go! were probably the best 2 words Moses & Aaron had heard in a long time...and it's incredible that after all of that, Pharoh saw the need for them to bless him....he saw that their God was real....
  • And the miracles the Israelites witnessed by the hand of God are unreal..."By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.  Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people."  Chapter 13, Verses 21 & 22
Matthew 19:1-15  
  • Strong words about divorce..."So they are no longer wo, but one.  Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."  Verse 6
  • And one of my favorite passages about God's love for children..."Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."   Verse 14
