    Day 101 – Signs and Wonders

    Thoughts and Reflection In today’s reading, we see that many of us may not follow Jesus. We hesitate to do what is difficult at times. Today we see Jesus’ miracles are signs — these signs are posting to Jesus’ identity. Jesus goes on to say and make it clear who he is. In John 8:58 […]

    99 days later and here we are at another recap/checkpoint. In the conquest and judges section, Israel finally possessed the land of Canaan.

    Day 98 – Israel Asks for a King

    Thoughts and Reflection In today’s reading, we read that Samuel is a good judge and prophet. His sons, however, turn out not to be.

    Day 95 – The Sin of Benjamin

    Thoughts and Reflection Today in the readings we read some of the darkest stories to date. A Levite priest takes a concubine. This goes against what God told us in Genesis 2. The men of Gibeah kill the concubine. Her body is then cut up into twelve pieces and sent to the twelve tribes of […]

    Day 94 – Samson and Delilah

    Thoughts and Reflection In today’s reading, we see that Samson is taken by his passions. He lets his desires and emotions rule him. Delilah asks him about the secret of his strength. He lies to her for the first three times. He finally tells her the truth and there was no reason to lie to […]

    Day 93 – Strengths and Weaknesses

    Thoughts and Reflection In today’s reading, the Lord comes to Manoah and his wife and will bless them with a son. It is rare that a person is consecrated as a Nazirite from birth and lives this way for his or her entire life. Samson is consecrated this way. Samson is not particularly a good […]
