Well now that January is over how did you do on your Bible study?
I did start studying “blessed” but I realize that is going to be on going. I got the definitions copied on to a word doc and as I read through Proverbs I looked up the word blessed as I found it in my daily reading. My big take away so far has been Proverbs 11:11 which says that we are to speak a blessing to our city.
I started on my second task which was to put together 1 + 2 Samuel with 1 Chronicles. The first place they really run together is 1 Samuel 31 and 1 Chronicles 10, which is the story of King Saul. (see Lord My/Your God and Why Hide a Grandson There) This of course started a side study on where is Mount Gilboa? I found this on-line http://www.bible-history.com/geography/ancient-israel/mount-gilboa.html and there were several good websites that talked about Mount Gilboa. Finding some of my old notes I still look at Saul as someone who had the call of God but not His presence. He also never brought the Ark of the Covenant to him, which is one of the first things David did. I also realize that even though he did it wrong Saul was still trying to find God, it is a shame that he did it his own way.
Well even though I really did not meet my goal I did study some of my plan. Keep working your plan because at least you are studying.
