Genesis 43:9. If I do not bring him back to you and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever. Joseph’s brothers had gone to Egypt seeking food during the famine. Now the food had run out, and their father Jacob told them to go back to Egypt. Joseph, whom they had not...

1 Corinthians 6:20. Therefore Glorify God in your body. Those of you that already know me, know that I enjoy athletic activity; rowing, bicycle riding, hiking, weight lifting, etc. So, when I read my assigned verse for this reflection, I got really excited! Many of my family, friends, and...

Acts 1:26. And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles. In this story the apostles pray and ask God to show whether Justus or Matthias should become the one to replace Judas and then they basically flip a coin. There are times I long...

1 Corinthians 5:3-4. I have already pronounced judgment in the name of the Lord Jesus on the man who has done such a thing. The Apostle Paul wrote these words many centuries ago and yet it still finds a foothold in our modern world. Here, Paul writes to a group of fledgling Christians in...

Psalm 58:10. The righteous will be glad when they see the vengeance; they will bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked. I admit that when I first read this passage, I grumbled to my husband Jesse about its seeming lack of contemporary relevance, especially the reference to “the...

Psalm 27:14. Though my father and my mother forsake me, the Lord will sustain me. Among the most profound of all our fears is the fear of abandonment. And the worst sort of abandonment would be abandonment by our mothers and fathers. Unthinkable. Not long after my mother died (my father had...

Psalm 139:20. Do I not hate those, O Lord, who hate you? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you? Look at me, Lord! I’m on your team. I’m a Christian and proud of it! Hold on…you told me to love my enemies. Wait a minute…the spotlight shouldn’t be...

Psalm 40:1. I waited patiently upon the Lord, he stooped to me and heard my cry. My father’s last days were excruciating! A week of no sleep, visitors coming to say “good-bye”, watching paternal grandparents in unspeakable grief...... I prayed, cried, ranted, asked God...

Mark 2:5. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” A group of men who knew of Jesus’ healing ministry were filled with compassion for a paralytic who was unable to approach Jesus, due to the crowds surrounding him. They took him...

Hebrews 4:9-10. So then, a Sabbath rest still remains for the people of God; for those who enter God’s rest also cease from their labors as God did from his. We just returned from a wonderful trip to Hawaii. ‘Wonderful,’ because after months of planning, our time away was...
