“The Journey” is Living Springs’ commitment to read at least a chapter of the Bible every day. We all follow the same reading schedule so that we can encourage each other along the way. And our pastors post occasional blogs about the readings to instruct and inspire us.
Want to join the Journey? This week’s daily readings are listed below, along with some questions to guide your reading. Sign up for the Journey blog, and you’ll receive the weekly reading schedule in your email inbox!
How long after leaving Egypt did Israel arrive in the wilderness of Sinai? What was Israel to be ready for in 3 days? What preparations did the people of Israel make before the third day? What would happen to the people if they set foot on the mountain while God was there?
What was the first set of instructions that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai? When the people saw the smoke and heard the thundering and the sound of the trumpet, how did they react? What did they ask Moses to do for them? How did God want them to build an altar to Him? Why was there to be no steps up to the altar?
If a servant did not want to leave his master after the seventh year, what was done to him? If a man struck his father or mother, what happened to him?
If your neighbor’s property is lost, destroyed, or stolen while it is in your care, in what way would you not be responsible for it? Why was Israel not to mistreat strangers in their land? Who are we not to revile or curse?
How many years was Israel to sow the land and let it rest? What were the 3 feasts that Israel was to observe each year? What did each feast represent? Why would God drive the people of the land of Canaan out slowly?
Who was Moses’ assistant on Mount Sinai? How long did Moses stay on the mountain?
