Moses: Endurance – Day 6

Read Exodus 16

Moses represents financial endurance, which requires well-ordered financial habits. We see this in his life in the way he implemented meticulous, thorough, and extremely structured systems pertaining to resources. Financial endurance doesn’t happen with haphazard, disorganized financial thinking and practices. Moses types are very organized with money and love thorough, thoughtful, short-and long-term financial plans. They find a system that works and they stick with it. They come to life within structure. Moses types are steady-handed, consistent, and determined.

Moses types believe there should be a place for every dollar, and every dollar should be in its place. They’ll check to make sure this is the case, and often so. Doing this provides Moses types the assurance not only that they are doing their part to provide for their needs in the most responsible way possible, but also that they have done everything within their power to prepare for financial situations that may arise in the future.

Moses was highly organized with resources. The books Exodus and Leviticus are stocked with examples that illustrate the plans Moses received from the Lord and had to execute, plans that called for meticulous resource management. Moses types love order, especially in their finances. They view it as the secret to longevity and long-term financial vitality. And while they think about money all the time, their well-ordered financial lifestyles provide space for them not to worry excessively about money.

Tomorrow, you’ll learn about the Aaron money type.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan, Day 9

Today’s reading is drawn from Luke 10:25-37.

Often misunderstood as a story about helping the needy, the primary point of this parable was to define the “neighbor” that the Torah commanded one to love. This parable was also a story of reconciliation between two Old Testament enemies who shared the same blood: When the people of Israel attacked the people of Judah in the days of King Ahaz, the people of Israel (the territory of Samaria) were commanded to return the captives of Judah to Jericho. They “provided them with clothes and sandals, food and drink, and healing balm” (2Ch 28:15).

Who is your “neighbor”?

Read: James 4:1-6

SOAP: James 4:4-6

When believers compromise and live for the culture, values, and ideas of the world we commit spiritual adultery. God makes it clear that we cannot serve two masters. When we live for the world, we will worship the things the world values which are in direct opposition to the values of God. We must choose daily to serve, worship, and live for God alone.

Where are you struggling to compromise with the world? God gives believers the power to resist the temptation to compromise God’s values and instead live wholeheartedly for Him.

Father God, I thank You for Your protection and escape from the temptation to compromise Your values and distort Your Word. Protect and guard my heart and mind from any thoughts, ideas, or belief systems that contradict Your Word. Lord, remove any areas of pride in my heart that may hinder me from humbly serving You and Your people. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
