Sunday, April 2nd: Judges 16-18; Luke 7:1-30 ~ Emma

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Judges 16-18; Luke 7:1-30

Old Testament:

Just like Samson had God-given strength, we are also given "strengths" by God. We need to make sure we use our strengths for God and His purposes, and not for the secular purposes of this world. 

New Testament:

The story of the centurion and his servant is a great example of what kind of leaders we should be (deeply loving and caring for those "below us" like the centurion), and also what kind of followers we should be (serving others wholeheartedly and wanting to do and give our best to them like the servant).

No matter what position we are put in, whether a "high-up" leader or a "down-low" servant, we can always use our strengths and abilities that God has given us for Him.
