The first part of our devotional reading in Matthew, back in February, took us first into the genealogy of Christ, and that reading sparked my fascination with the stories of some of those folks in Jesus’ family tree, which also triggered me to read Luke’s genealogical record of Jesus, and since it ends with “Adam which was the son of God,” I wanted to go read our first history in Genesis and Exodus . . . so we’ve been time traveling through the beginnings stories in Genesis and Exodus, in March and April, and we’re gonna finish up in May, and then launch back into the New Testament with the gospel of Mark.
 
Yes, Genesis and Exodus have some crazy stories, and I just shake my head at some of the stuff, but I’m listening both for how God wanted to interact with those folks and how He eventually had to interact with them, and I’m trying to draw conclusions on how He wants to interact with me, and decide how I’m gonna cooperate with Him in what He wants to accomplish.  . . . it’s interesting!
 
I guess it would be safe to say that I really enjoying whatever our devotional reading might be, and while some stuff is a better read than others, it’s all just really good for my spirit and my soul!  And I want to say it again – thanks for coming along with me on my devotional jaunts, because I love having traveling companions as I walk these devotional paths!  And it’s my hope that you’re listening for the voice of God as well, as we move along and observe how He interacted with mankind throughout history, because I think He wants to interact with us today, and I think we can learn some great lessons from those folks.  I’m always refreshed and strengthened in my faith as we meander along in our devotional readings, and I hope you are too. 
 
Thanks again for joining me!  
Shalom, 
D.P.
