A podcast designed to help you engage with the Bible daily! Each day, we begin with a reading assignment, designed to take no longer than a few minutes. Then a few minutes of thoughts, comments and questions follow, to help you more fully engage with the text, and to consider throughout the day or to help you begin journaling.
It's not the intent to be exhaustive in covering everything, or even to tell you what you should think about a given text. The main idea is to give you a starting point to begin thinking through and engaging with the text yourself, whether you a seasoned Bible student, or this is your first time reading the Bible. The reading selections are kept purposefully small, to make it as easy as possible to develop the discipline of regular Bible reading, and more importantly Bible engaging! It also helps make it possible to catch up if you fall behind a few days.
March 5, 2017: Genesis 32
Jacob hears Esau is coming to meet him with 400 men! Jacob prays to God, and sends gifts to try and aswage his older brother. Jacob even splits his family into two camps thinking he might at least be able to run away with half after Esau attacks the first. Late at night, Jacob then wrestles a man, and despite not losing, Jacob cannot seem to get a blessing out of him.
