Saturday, April 1st: Judges 13-15; Luke 6:27-49 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Judges 13-15; Luke 6:27-49

I found it incredibly ironic that we first read the story of Samson, and his penchant for revenge, and then when we switched to the NT we immediately read....
27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
It goes against our natural instinct to respond to abuse with love - indeed, it is only possible through the power of the Holy Spirit living within us.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  Judges 16-18; Luke 7:1-30

Luke 6:45
The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

What comes out of my mouth? Evil or good? What comes out of my mouth is a reflection of what's in my heart, a very sobering reminder to clean up and make sure what's in my heart is good and pleasing to God.
