Daily Wisdom Challenge 2013 - Week 2

On January 1, I began my third-ever year long bible study.  Our pastor calls it the Daily Wisdom Challenge {or the "Twitter Bible Study"}.  The purpose is to engage in a reading plan for a year, and post insight from your reading each day, in 140 characters or less!  You can find a reading plan at YouVersion.  This year, I have selected the Historical reading plan which will take me through the entire bible in historical order over the course of one year.

This week I only wrote four little insightful nuggets as opposed to seven {one for each day of the week}.  I am still on track with my reading plan.  I haven't missed any days.  It's just that on the days I did not write something specifically for the daily readings, they were days where the readings were mostly commentaries on family lineage - passages where it's facts rather than wisdom.

Here is what I learned over the past week:

Gen 25:30-32 Be careful what you do in times when you are feeling desperate. One decision could have greater implications than you realize.

Gen 27:41 Do not be surprised when unhappiness results from your deception.

Gen 30:22 God remembers all our trials and challenges. They are not forgotten. He does hear and answer prayer.

Gen 33:3-4 Trust in God when you are fearing an outcome that lies ahead. It may not be as bad as you've made it out to be in your mind.
