My New Friday Night Stress Reliever

Filed in Personal, SportsTags: Volleyball

Can't think of a better way to end the week for the next eight weeks: Co-Ed Sand Volleyball. Our low-rec team, Bananas, lost all six games we played last night; but I guarantee we had more fun than anyone else!

On that note, happy Daylight Savings Time-change night!

Today´s reading:
OT: Deuteronomy 18, Deuteronomy 19, Deuteronomy 20
NT: Luke 9:28-50
Ps: Psalm 73
Pr: Proverbs 12:10

Today´s notable verses:

My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:26 (NIV)

Reading truths such as this one, and knowing them, is one thing - but living and walking out these truths cements our belief, and the experiences that bear out these truths become the building blocks of an ever-deepening faith.

A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal...

Proverbs 12:10a (NIV)

That one's for you, Kelly! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The One Year Bible Blog asks:

I read an interesting commentary that said Peter was suggesting that 3 shelters be made because Peter thought at that time that the faith was built on these 3 pillars: The Law (Moses), the Prophets (Elijah), and Jesus. Whereas, Peter later understood that through the New Covenant our faith is now built on Jesus, "a chosen and precious cornerstone" (1 Peter 2:6).

Interesting: I had never thought of the Transfiguration in this symbolic manner; but, it makes sense!
