March 15 – Daily Notes – Amanda

secrets

Today’s Proverb reminds us that flapping our gums is hurtful and unwise. It is too easy to break trust, tell secrets, and speak ill of others for our own gain. Unfortunately, these things have been problems for humanity for centuries, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to stop these tempting habits.

Numbers 22:21-23:30:

  • 22 – It is confusing why God gets angry about Balaam going with the princes of Balak because God gave him permission. God’s permission, however, was to only do what God told him to do. Balaam may have acted in a way at some point that was not pleasing to God.
  • 23-35 – Did you know this was in the Bible? Yep, a talking donkey. God truly can do all things! Note that God gave special sight to the donkey to see the angel and protect Balaam.
  • Balak continues to push Balaam to bend to his will instead of God’s. Balaam’s response is continually, “All that the Lord says, that I must do.”

Luke 1:57-80:

  • 68-79 – Zechariah’s song serves as both a praise song to God and a blessing for John.

Proverbs 11:12-13:

  • It seems that we still have the same problems that ancient Jews did. They struggled with slander and trustworthiness and we do as well. The Proverbs are helpful for us even today.

  1. I’m having a hard time finding the Numbers video you posted. The one that shows up under your daily post is a Genesis video. Am I doing something wrong? I scrolled through some of the available videos but didn’t see Numbers.

  2. Hey Christina,
    Sorry about that! Here are links to the original Numbers video as well as the most recent one I posted, the Torah edition.

    And, if there’s ever a video you can’t find. I try to list them on the resource page after they post on the blog.

    Thanks for reading!
