Time: 7:45 AM

Weather: Looks sunny from my window

Readings: Joshua, chapters 16-20

Noteworthy Verse:

“On the other side of the Jordan, east of Jericho, they designated Bezer on the desert plateau from the tribe of Reuben, Ramoth in Gilead from the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan from the tribe of Manasseh.  These were the designated cities for the people of Israel and any resident foreigner living among them, so that anyone who killed someone unintentionally could flee there and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood without a fair trial before the congregation.”

Joshua 20:8-9

Significance:

  • This verse shows that God is just and cares about weather people get what they deserve.  Exodus 21:24 states that just punishment is “eye for eye” but this verse shows that God also cares about intentions.  A fair trial is essential in legal disputes is essential and God clearly thought so.

Feelings:
I hung out with several of my lady friends last night; two of whom I’ve known since high school.  On one hand we’ve all managed to stay in touch well enough for us to celebrate Independence Day together, while at the same time branching out into completely different directions in life.  It honestly felt bittersweet.

I didn’t pray or stretch for 30 minutes yesterday 😦 I won’t let that happen again today!
