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. Each Rest Day, we will also introduce a memory verse for the week. Meditate on this week’s verse and begin to memorize it.
Who Wrote 1 Chronicles? And Why Does it Matter?
Jewish tradition points to Ezra as the writer (or “chronicler”) of 1 & 2 Chronicles (which was originally just one long book, like 1 & 2 Kings and 1 & 2 Samuel).
This book is a retelling of Jewish history, with some overlap between Kings and Samuel. For more on these similarities and differences (and why 1 Chronicles is important), check out this helpful overview from Dr. Charles Swindoll.
