LEVITICUS 25:Yesterday we heard about the seven important yearly celebrations of the Jewish religion. Then we heard about oil and bread for the tabernacle, and then there was the example of a law-breaker who was stoned to death for his crime of blasphemy. PSALM 23:Today we read the most famous psalm of all. My wife has often said: Psalm 23 is so often quoted at funerals, but this is a psalm about living, not dying! LUKE 16:Yesterday in Luke 15, we heard the three-part parable of the lost sheep, lost coin, and lost son. There is much treasure to dig for there! Consider taking some time to reflect on that wonderful chapter. GNT Translation notes:Ps. 23:1-3 I have read this using second person ‘You’ for God, in order to make it clear that David is praying right from the start of this Psalm.4 [CEV 4 I may walk through valleysas dark as death,but I won't be afraid.You are with me,and your shepherd's rod dmakes me feel safe.//NLT Even when I walkthrough the dark valley of death, 1I will not be afraid,for you are close beside me.Your rod and your staffprotect and comfort me.]5 You prepare a banquet for me, [right] where all my enemies can see me; you welcome me as an honored guest and fill my cup to the brim.====Luk. 16:6 ‘One hundred barrels of olive oil,’ he answered. ‘Here is your account,’ the manager told him; ‘sit down and [change it to//write] fifty.’ 7 Then he asked another one, ‘And you—how much do you owe?’ ‘A thousand bushels of wheat,’ he answered. ‘Here is your account,’ the manager told him; ‘[change it to//write] eight hundred.’ NLT Translation notes:6 The man replied, ‘I owe him 800 gallons of olive oil.’ So the manager told him, ‘[My dear friend, take//Take] the bill and quickly change it to 400 gallons.’7 “‘And how much do you owe my employer?’ he asked the next man. ‘I owe him 1,000 bushels of wheat,’ was the reply. ‘Here, [my friend,/0]’ the manager said, ‘take the bill and change it to 800 bushels.’9 Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make [heavenly/0] friends. Then, when your earthly possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home.
