DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Exodus 21-23
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Three times you shall keep a feast to Me in the year: You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread (you shall eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt; none shall appear before Me empty); and the Feast of Harvest, the firstfruits of your labors which you have sown in the field; and the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labors from the field. “Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord God.”” (Exodus 23:14-17)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
God in His lovingkindness has revealed His ways, laws, wisdom, judgments, feasts, and celebrations for His people to know Him, and for His people to apply them in drawing closer to Him. There is great joy in beholding God (Psalm 48:1-2), and there is happiness for the people of God who find and understand God’s wisdom (Proverbs 3:13). After beholding God, the Psalmist in Psalm 104:1 wrote about how God was clothed with honor and majesty. In Mark 9:1-8, our Lord Jesus Christ transfigured before His disciples, Peter, James, and John, and Jesus also spoke with Moses and Elijah. It is a blessing to keep the instructions that God has given to us (Proverbs 10:17), and it is also a blessing to honor God with the fruits of our labors (Proverbs 3:9-10). Thank God for all His blessings in our lives. Amen.

“‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38)
“If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.” (John 13:17)
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)
