It's Day 1 and we're in Matthew 15.
We have lots of excuses for why we don't read the Bible: "I'm too busy," "I don't know where to start," "I tried it once and got confused," "I just never got around to it." I hope "60IN60" helps you to be able to overcome those excuses and experience a rewarding time in the Word.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 4 - This is a challenging verse for me, because the penalty seems too severe. This is a part of the Word that I will have to keep wrestling with.
- Verses 21-28 - It seems harsh that Jesus declines her request. His mission at this point is exclusively to the lost sheep of Israel. In other words, He's come to try to win back God's people to God. Of course, we know that they will reject Him. But before they do that, He focuses His attention on them. You can't say yes to everything.
