blue pennant pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Genesis 3

“Goodness in man is not a mere passive quality, but the deliberate preference of right to wrong, the firm and persistent resistance of all moral evil, and the choosing and following of all moral good.”
Easton’s Bible Dictionary

  • To recognize goodness, we must also recognize it’s opposite. How did evil come into the world?
  • It is so easy to think of goodness as an inherent quality. But we learn here that it is a choice! Comment on the action it takes to live a life full of goodness (Romans 2:6-16).

Micah 6:6-8

“What does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?”

  • Using Micah 6:6-7 as a guide, what do humans think they can pay for their sins?
  • We are now sanctified by the blood of Christ, praise the Lord (Hebrews 9:11-14) ! Still, God tells us here the life He has called us to live. Rewrite verse 8 in the first person.

Thus Says the Lord…Show Kindness

pink rect stitch pray

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Zechariah 7:8-14

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Render true judgments,
show kindness and mercy to one another…'”
Zechariah 7:9

pink rect stitch write

  • How did Zechariah know what to speak?
  • Using v. 9 & v.10, list what God asks of His people?
  • How did the people respond?
  • They refused to listen & hardened their hearts. What does Jesus tell us about our heart condition (see Mark 12:28-31)?
  • What is the consequence the people suffer?
  • What can you do today to render true judgements and show kindness & mercy?

You do not want to be in a desolate land! Pray about it and ask God to reveal if you have hardened your heart toward Him in any way. Is there any anger, unforgiveness, stubbornness, covetousness, envy, gossip…
