Time: 10:39 AM

Weather: Beautiful, sunny day

Readings: 1 Chronicles, chapters 21-25

Noteworthy Verse:

“Now Satan entered the scene and seduced David into taking a census of Israel.  David gave orders to Joab and the army officers under him, “Canvas all the tribes of Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, and get a count of the population.  I want to know the number.”

1 Chronicles 21:1-2

Significance:

  • This verse clearly shows how Satan can influence us.  Often Satan leads us astray by tempting us to take actions that don’t seem “bad” or “wrong.”  Nothing seems inherently “bad” about taking a census… however it was not God’s will.  Instead of asking God what David should do, David did what he thought was right and ultimately Israel paid the consequences.

Feelings:
Feeling energized today 🙂
