Day 47/90: Judges 11-15, Isa 25-30, 1 Cor 4-6

Highlights on today's reading:
  • Don't ever make foolish commitments to God, especially when your commitments to Him will lead you to disobey Him - crazy how we play games with God this way, "I'll do this if you do this..." like God is some kind of slot machine.
  • Samson is another leader that God blessed who was constantly over-confident in his own cleverness instead of confident in God - I hope I don't look too much like Samson, but that I learn to trust in God.
  • Isaiah praises God for all that He has done and all that He will do, but especially praises Him that He is a God who is worthy of our trust - that when we trust in Him, our trust is not misplaced. Again, I am reminded through today's reading that God desires our trust.
  • 1 Corinthians 5 & 6 seem very relevant today with the proliferation of sexual immorality in our culture - one chapter dealing with how we treat our brothers in Christ who refuse to repent and the next dealing with a personal philosophy of sexual immorality - don't combine the Spirit of Christ that lives in you with anything sexually immoral.
