DAILY READINGS: Num. 25:1-26:51; Prov. 22:17-23:11; Luke 1:26-56

I will turn to you and make you fruitful and multiply you and will confirm my covenant with you. You shall eat old store long kept, and you shall clear out the old to make way for the new. I will make my dwelling among you, and my soul shall not abhor you. Leviticus 26:9-11 

We find “you” throughout this entire chapter. God wants us to glory in the fact that He loves us and deals with us always as individuals. Thus it is intensely personal. Salvation is offered to the world (John 3:16), but I must make it mine. His  personal interest in me is a wonderful, blessed, comforting thought. —Vernon Markle

I am so glad that our Father in heav’n, tells of His love in the Book
He has giv’n; Wonderful things in the Bible I see, this is the dearest,
that Jesus loves me. —Philip P. Bliss
