Today’s readings.. (Nehemiah 11), (Amos 3), (1 Timothy 6)

Do you store up treasure, if so, what sort of treasure? Nehemiah and Ezra have told us of the treasure that was brought back to Jerusalem – and of the things that really mattered. The City walls and gates are now intact, they have held a great feast of tabernacles, they “taught the people … eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions  to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord.  And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” [Neh. 8 v.10]  Do we have that kind of strength?

Their parents, and some of them as young children had been taken into captivity – they had learnt a bitter lesson, the answer to the question that we read in Amos 3 today, “Does disaster come to a city, unless the LORD has done it? {v.6] We can add, ‘or allowed it!’  Then, as now, “’They do not know how to do right,’ declares the LORD.”  [v.10]

We also read Paul’s concluding chapter of his first letter to Timothy.  He counsels him to teach the believers at Ephesus – using words which are very appropriate for us – that they should not “set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches (in gaining them or keeping them) but on God, who richly provides us with everything (that God sees as essential) to enjoy.  They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.” 6 v.17-19]

Do we see “that which is truly life?”  Let us all check how much “treasure” we have stored up – and live so that we keep adding to it.

A small group of young Christadelphian brothers have taken the time to produce this valuable resource for the brotherhood and beyond, they are using the Bible reading planner developed by Brother Robert Roberts called The Bible Companion. The Bible Companion (or Bible Reading Planner) is a guide developed by the Christadelphians to aid reading the Bible. It was first produced by Robert Roberts when he was just 14 years of age, in about 1853, and revised by him over a number of years into its current format. Most Christadelphians use this plan each day and it was designed to help you read the old testament once and the new testament twice each year. These readings which we feature are recorded using the KJV or the NKJV of the Bible and we hope will be helpful to those who may struggle with time or who have poor eyesight.
