60IN60 Day 30 - Tues Dec 4

It's Day 30 and we're in Matthew 24.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 42 - We need to live ready.

- There's a lot of stuff here that might raise questions.  Feel free to email your questions.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Where God Spoke To You In Previous Chapters:
- "For years I spent most of my prayer time bringing petitions for others before the Lord. I appreciate this Psalms because it reminds me to pray for myself. There needs to be a balance in prayer. We can are overwhelmed with the needs of others but if we keep ourselves before the Lord, perhaps others will be helped."

Questions On Previous Chapters:
- 22:41-46 - "Why do you think Jesus said he is the son of David instead of Joseph?" - I think it has to do with the larger point He's making.  The "son of David" was one way to refer to the coming Messiah.  If the Messiah had been a normal human, the fact that David had come first would have meant that the Messiah would have given honor to David.  Instead, David gives the Messiah honor by calling Him "Lord."  Jesus is bringing out the fact that He is more than a mere human - He's the pre-existant Son of God.  Even though Jesus was born into this world after David, David still gives Him the honor of calling Him Lord.
