Day 2 Gleanings of Bible Reading Plan

Here are some gleanings from day 2 of my 2008 Bible reading plan. Reading large portions of Scripture affords you the opportunity to observe more in the text. I’ve jotted down some prayers, subjects of further inquiry and study, and interesting observations from Genesis 1-26:

The phrase “Called on the name of the LORD…” in some form, occurs several times in Genesis. See Genesis 4:26; 12:8; 13:4; 21:33; 26:25

Interesting cultural tidbit: The custom of putting a hand under the thigh of someone and swearing on oath {Genesis 24:2-3, 9}

PRAYER: “May I live with integrity of heart and innocence of hands.”- Genesis 20:5

God’s sovereignty over man’s actions; God says that He kept Abimelech from sinning against Him- Genesis 20:6

Isaac meditates in the evening- Genesis 24:63 {How do we spend our evenings? T.V.? Internet?}

PRAYER: “May I obey God’s voice and keep His charge, His commandments, His statutes and His laws like Abraham.” Genesis 26:5
