Numbers 18-20

Daily Reading Numbers 18-20 Daily Thought God delivered the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt and all they have done is grumble and complain, sin and rebel. Now they are whining again.

Numbers 16-17

Daily Reading Numbers 16-17 Daily Thought Korah and his company of 250 leaders incited a rebellion against Moses. “Who put you in charge?” they challenged. Well, God did.

Numbers 14-15

Daily Reading Numbers 14-15 Daily Thought Over and over the people complain. The common theme, “Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?” (Numbers 14:3). We read this and we ask incredulously, how can these people ignore the memory of slavery in Egypt? The same way you and I do. Just […]

Numbers 5-6

Daily Reading Numbers 5-6 Daily Thought When God created man and woman, he designed marriage as a foundational covenant for a godly people. God then declared all of creation to be “very good” (Genesis 1:31).

Numbers 3-4

Daily Reading Numbers 3-4 Daily Thought “From thirty years old up to fifty years old, you shall list them, all who can come to do duty, to do service in the tent of meeting” (Numbers 4:23). In the Hebrew, “to do duty” reads literally “to war the warfare.” It is repeated several times in Numbers, chapter 4, verses […]

Numbers 1-2

Daily Reading Numbers 1-2 Daily Thought We count people, as well as we can. “Take a census of all the congregation of the people of Israel, by clans, by fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male, head by head” (Numbers 1:2). There are 7,000,000,000 people on this planet, more or less. Best guess is 100 […]
