The most important message I picked up from today’s readings overall is wisdom is available to all who seek it.
My primary takeaway from each of the passages was this:
- Exodus 27-28 – More details about the construction of the sanctuary. Keeping the lamp burning at all times symbolizes God saying, “We’ll leave the light on for you.”
- Mark 11 – “I tell you, therefore, everything you ask and pray for, believe that you have it already, and it will be yours. And when you stand in prayer, forgive whatever you have against anybody, so that your Father in heaven may forgive your failings, too.” v.24-25
- Psalms 39 – When things are going badly and life itself feels like punishment, cry out to God and ask for mercy. It will be granted every single time.
- Proverbs 8 – Wisdom is not only available to all who seek it, but it is also always crying out to us, trying to get our attention. The evidence of the wisdom available to us is written in the laws of nature and physics. All we have to do is respond to the world around us in a healthy and responsible way and its secrets will be revealed to us.
That’s what I got out of it. What did you get out of the readings today?
