In Numbers 7, we heard about the gifts given by the leaders of Israel following the dedication of the sacred tent.
Psalm 31 is a desperate— yet confident, prayer for protection. This prayer models the secret of effective prayer— praying with full belief in the Lord.
Yesterday’s reading in the first part of Luke 20 showed how the Jewish leaders tried to confront and discredit Jesus. I remember reading these passages in the summer after 6th grade and being so impressed with Jesus' wisdom.
