March 25 – Daily Reading – Deuteronomy 15-17 / Luke 2:1-24
March 26 – NO READING
Deuteronomy 17:20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Many years ago I worked in the Food Service Industry. That is a fancy way of saying I bused tables at a restaurant. I worked my way up to the position of waiter, and finally was given the manager’s position. Before becoming manager, there was another guy I worked with who did not like the manager we had. The reason was simple. That manager did not care about his employee. He tried to make people respect his authority, but instead he made people dislike him. I recall my friend saying, “If I ever get the manager job, I will never do what he does.” Guess what? He got the job. Do you know what else? He acted just like the manager he despised. He forgot about the cares and lives of the people he worked with, and instead turned into the tyrant he disliked. It was not long until he was fired too.
In today’s passage Israel did not have a king. However, God in His wisdom and foresight knew they would demand one someday. So, in Deut. 17 He sets up guidelines for the position. Vs 15 says he must be an Israeli National, no foreigners. A foreigner would not have experienced their history. Vs 16-17 says He is not to multiply horses, which represents military power, nor wives which could divert his attention, nor money or wealth. Vs 18-19 says he was to write a copy of God’s Word and read it daily. Why? So he would not become prideful, and remember his job was to follow God and care for the people.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
Sometimes Christians forget, it is God who changes lives. We forcing on people our version of a Christian. Our job is to share the gospel and love God’s children. I once heard it said; “God makes us fishers of men. If we catch them, God will clean them.”
Are you fishing or fighting?
THE WEEK IN REVIEW:
Looking back can, at times, be harmful. We may forget our Christian race is before us, not behind us. However, as we have seen this week, we should remember some things:
● Remember The Journey
● Remember His Jealousy
● Remember To Journal
● Remember The Judge
● Remember To Justify
● Remember Your Job
It is like the rearview mirrors of your car. Great tools as we move forward for God.
Enjoy today with your church and hear what God has prepared in the heart of His man for you this week.
See you tomorrow.
Today we suggest you read and study whatever the Lord has laid on your Pastors heart. Whatever scripture he uses for today’s messages were given to him by God for your specific needs.

Rather to aid those who did not know
of the past as they moved forward
In their journey with Him.
Let your past propel you into
serving God better in the future.
