Today is a Rest Day. There is no new Bible reading to do. Today, the goal is simple: rest in the presence of God. Maybe you need to use today to get caught up on the reading plan if you’re behind, maybe you want to journal what you’re learning so you don’t forget what God is teaching you, or maybe you want to spend time in concentrated prayer–do that. Above all, just spend time in God’s presence.
Deep Dive: The Legacy of Solomon
Solomon is a complicated figure in scripture. On one hand, his humble request for wisdom started him (and his kingdom) off on the right foot. Each time you read the book of Proverbs, remember that’s a result of that request! On the other hand, his willingness to ignore the law and chase after his heart’s desires ultimately led to his own demise (see Ecclesiastes).
