60IN60 Day 36 - Mon Feb 10

It's Day 36 and we're in 2 Kings 5.

If you struggle with the feeling that you need to hurry through the reading, it can be helpful to lay aside a certain length of time for the reading. "I'm going to spend the next ten minutes reading the Bible. If I get done early, I'll go back and re-read it. If I don't get it done, that's fine. Now I can relax and not try to hurry through so I can get on with the other things I need to get done today. I'm going to be here for ten minutes." 

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 11 - Sometimes we don't just want God to move - we want Him to do things the way that we want Him to do it.  Of course, He has the right to do it however He wants.

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

Your Questions and Comments:
- "Jeremiah 31:29-30 - Did people die for another person's sins prior to this?" - Verse 29 is quoted as a saying in Jeremiah's day.  The people in his day said that the fathers ate grapes and the children's teeth were set on edge.  In other words, the fathers did the sins but the children suffered the consequences.  This is almost certainly an attempt on their part to pretend like they weren't sinning.  "It's not us - we're being punished for our fathers' sins."  God replies to their claims in verse 30 by stating that He's going to make it abundantly clear: everyone is suffering punishment for the sin they committed, not someone else's sin.  This is not, to my mind, a change in the way God was doing things, but just a re-emphasis of the way things are.
