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.

Wisdom 18-19

Wisdom 18-19 continues the review of the events of the Exodus and of lessons learned. Reassurance: God is with us, guiding and protecting us. Contrast the punishment God imposed on the powerful nation: They deserved it because they were unkind to immigrants.

The book of Wisdom closes with this address to God:
For in everything, O Lord, you have exalted and glorified your people,
and you have not neglected to help them at all times and in all places.
Tomorrow we will begin reflecting on (The Wisdom of Jesus Son of) Sirach, also known as Ecclesiasticus.  Read the Prologue and first four chapters.
