Reading along with us in Exodus? Here’s today’s reading:

Exodus 23 (ESV)

“You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. 2 You shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice, 3 nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his lawsuit.

    It was not good to be one of the -ites in that day!

  2. I spent the weekend in Numbers preparing for Sunday, and now trying to catch up here. There are so many valuable truths here. The ones that jumped out at me most…”Do not follow the crowd In doing wrong”, don’t leave your enemies ox injured rather help him, leaving fields fallow for a Sabbath year as provision for the poor and wild animals, an angel to guide, and God sending the dread of His people ahead of them into the hearts of other nations. We certainly have seen that in our study of numbers as well as the victory that God assures them in this passage of Exodus.
