It's Day 58 and we're in Nehemiah 8.
Note that we skipped Nehemiah 7 - it's mostly accounting.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 17 - Here's a tradition they were supposed to be doing all along and they hadn't done it in a very long time. It's important to know that what we're used to doing isn't necessarily what God is wanting us to do - it may just be what we've come to settle for.
- Verse 9, 11 - Why were they weeping? Two main possibilities: 1. They were weeping for joy at how far God had brought them and being able to read the Word again. 2. They were weeping as the Law was read and they realized how far from God they had gotten. I think the second is more likely.
