March 17 – Truly Scared Parents

March 17
Numbers 26:1-51
Luke 2:36-52
Psalm 60:1-12
Proverbs 11:15

Numbers 26:11 – This is the mercy of the Lord that overtakes the justice (Exodus 20:6, 34:7).

Luke 2:37 – It has been said that retirement is not found in the Bible. Thankful for senior saints like Anna!


Luke 2:44 – Joseph and Mary were entrusted with the Messiah – and not only had they lost Him, they didn’t know it until they were already a day’s journey out of Jerusalem. They let the Father down. Yet He was about the business of His Father (v.49).

Psalm 60:9 Matthew Henry shares:

 Now, (1.) David is here enquiring for help to carry on the ark: “Who will bring me into the strong city? What allies, what auxiliaries, can I depend upon, to make me master of the enemies’ country and their strongholds?’’ Those that have begun a good work cannot but desire to make a thorough work of it, and to bring it to perfection. (2.) He is expecting it from God only.

Proverbs 11:15Earlier this year we were warned about being surety for a friend (and we talked about NPR’s story on suretyship). If you didn’t get the message then, Solomon is repeating it!
