It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Reflection on the One-Year-Bible readings for November 29

Turn to me and be gracious to me,
as is your custom toward those who love your name.
(Psalm 119:132)

Daniel 6:1-28
Daniel's outstanding achievements were so outstanding that his competitors became jealous. They plotted a way to have Daniel thrown into a pit of lions. The Lord protected him. King Darius was so impressed that he had Daniel's accusers along with their whole families thrown to the lions.

Darius published a proclamation throughout his kingdom that the God of Daniel was the living, eternal, all-powerful God.

2 Peter 3:1-18
Directions on how Christians were to live in their time and place, with consideration to the social standards of that time and place. Some rules still are applicable to our times, but others may not seem to be.

Psalm 119:129-152

Proverbs 28:21-22
To show partiality is not good--
yet for a piece of bread a person may do wrong.
The miser is in a hurry to get rich 
and does not know that loss is sure to come.

Prayer for Today: Reread today's passage from 2 Peter then pray for the patience to wait for the Lord's patience.
