Today´s reading:
OT: Numbers 24, Numbers 25
NT: Luke 2:1-35
Ps: Psalm 59
Pr: Proverbs 11:14

Today´s notable verse:

16 But I will sing of your strength,
in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.
17 O my Strength, I sing praise to you;
you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God.

Psalm 59:16-17 (NIV)

What a beautiful, comforting perspective of God: Strength, fortress, refuge! No matter the hardships I have faced these several months, they have only served to ground me all the more firmly in my Refuge, to rely all the more completely on God my Strength, and to demonstrate all the more clearly my Fortress. These past several months truly have been a unique season in my life, but they have only resulted in increasing my desire and ability to sing praise to my God for His love and protection.

The One Year Bible Blog asks:

Proverbs chapter 11 verse 14 is a great teaching that it is wise to seek the counsel of others.

Yep! More thoughts on that when I get my Crown homework uploaded...
