    As Sarah walked past the door of her teenage son’s bedroom one night, she saw him sitting in bed with his Bible in hand. “John, I’m happy to see you reading your Bible,” she said.



    He frowned. “But I don’t get anything out of it.”



    “You may not see the effects now,” she assured him, “but you are being changed.”



    Moses spent forty days on Mount Sinai, where God gave him the Ten Commandments the second time. When he returned to the Israelite camp, he was not the same.



    When Moses came down Mount Sinai carrying the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, he wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the Lord (Exodus 34:29).



    Spending time with God, praying, meditating, reading the Bible, and hearing His Word preached have a profound effect on your life. Although your face may not light up, time in His presence changes you, and people will know you have been with the Lord.



    Prayer Suggestion: Holy Spirit, keep changing me from glory to glory to be more like my Savior. Amen.

    Israel: 13-year-old Muslim shoots two Israelis in jihad attack in Jerusalem’s Old City
    If this had happened anywhere else, the media reports would say that the police are searching for a motive. Even in Israel authorities never, ever speak about the Islamic doctrine of jihad, but everyone knows that the motive is the jihad imperative to destroy Israel utterly. https://twitter.com/Ostrov_A/status/1619260972488859650 https://twitter.com/SafaPs/status/1619260777961250816 "Two seriously hurt in 2nd Jerusalem terror...

    GOD-HONORING DECISIONS
    READ EXODUS 28:1 THROUGH 29:46
    How can a believer be assured he is walking in God’s will? This question concerns every sincere Christian. This is also God’s concern. He longs for people to walk in His ways so their lives are happy, productive, and God-honoring. One piece of the priests’ garments addressed discerning God’s will for the Israelites.



    “Insert the Urim and Thummim into the sacred chestpiece so they will be carried over Aaron’s heart when he goes into the Lord’s presence. In this way, Aaron will always carry over his heart the objects used to determine the Lord’s will for his people whenever he goes in before the Lord” (Exodus 28:30).



    Inside the chestpiece were two stones called the Urim and Thummim. The priest reached into the chestpiece and chose a stone to reveal God’s will.



    Christians don’t wear a specific garment or choose between two stones to make choices, but God has ways to let us know His will. Principles found in the Bible are to be the basis for our choices. The Holy Spirit guides the Christian’s heart and mind.



    Thought for Today: Every choice you make has the possibility of changing your life forever.

    HEARTFELT GIVING
    READ EXODUS 25:1 THROUGH 27:21
    During the Israelites’ time in the wilderness, God instructed Moses to do a new thing. He told him to build a place for worship, a movable structure called a tabernacle. God gave Moses specific directions for the tabernacle’s construction: the size and color of curtains, room dimensions, and clothing of the priests and Levites who would serve in the tabernacle. God was also clear about the spirit in which the people were to present their offerings to build the place of worship.



    “Tell the people of Israel to bring me their sacred offerings. Accept the contributions from all whose hearts are moved to offer them” (Exodus 25:2).



    God is interested in every detail of your work for Him, but He also looks at the motives behind your actions. He desires that your heart enter into your giving.



    What is involved in heartfelt giving? First, give yourself to God. Then listen to God. Give what God impresses upon you to give. Above all, do it with a joy-filled heart.



    Prayer Suggestion: God, everything comes from You and belongs to You. I offer myself and all I have to You. Amen.

    MAKING WRONGS RIGHT
    READ EXODUS 22:1 THROUGH 24:18
    “When I was twelve, I stole a watch from my cousin,” Mary Lou confessed to her pastor’s wife. “Since then I’ve become a Christian. Should I offer to pay my cousin for the watch?”



    “Restitution is giving back to the rightful owner something lost or stolen,” the pastor’s wife replied. “The Bible gives us guidelines for returning stolen items.”



    After the Israelites fled from Egypt and became a nation, God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. In later Scripture, God gave specific situations to show how these laws apply to personal possessions.



    “If someone borrows an animal from a neighbor and it is injured or dies when the owner is absent, the person who borrowed it must pay full compensation” (Exodus 22:14).



    In the give-and-take of life, offenses happen. If you are troubled by a past action, go to the person involved. An apology may be in order. If you’ve stolen an item or it was lost or destroyed while in your possession, offer to pay the cost involved. You will be obeying God, and He will give you a clear conscience.



    Thought for Today: Good relationships with God and others involve honesty, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

    DOING HIS WORK TOGETHER
    READ EXODUS 16:1 THROUGH 18:27
    God had led the Israelites out of Egypt, but they faced many obstacles before they reached the Promised Land. First, they had to conquer the enemy who was living in the land. One of those enemies was the Amalekites. Joshua led the Israelite army into battle just as Moses had instructed.



    Moses was on a hill along with Aaron and Hur. God had told Moses to lift his arms with the staff of God in his hands.



    As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever

    he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage (Exodus 17:11).



    Aaron and Hur rushed to hold Moses’ arms up until the Israelite army defeated its enemy. Working together, the battle was won.



    Just as Moses’ coworkers lifted his arms that his work might be done, so Christians need to lift one another in prayer that their battles may be won.



    Prayer Suggestion: Ask God how to encourage other Christians as they live and strive to do His work.
