In Luke 9 verse 7 reading today I realized that, when we are feeling puzzled or worried about a situation or problem we basiclly are saying, "God this problem is too big for you". We seem to have this false belief that we are in control. It is only when we let go and let God, that we see the truth. We have no conrol over anything. What peace I feel when I finally let go and let Him do His job. Have a blessed day. Peggy

Hello Everyone,

Thinking about Deuteronomy today, I find it interesting that the witnesses are the first to physically have a hand in putting the accused to death:

"At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death. The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you." -Deuteronomy 17: 6-7

There is a sense of things coming full circle with this type of system--it's a fair system but also intensely personal. I can't help think about how different things are in our culture, where everything is handled by the state so impersonally. I'm not drawing any conclusions here---just noticing the difference,

I thought it was cool that God told the king to make a copy of the law and read it every day so he would stay loyal to God and rule the people justly. I can't help but think that He wants the same from us as parents. Of course, we all need to be reading the Word daily, that is why it is called our DAILY bread.

I really liked the ending of this Psalm. especially the phrase "may the whole earth be filled with his glory." What a great statement. This does seem some to be a key reason for why we all are here.
