Moravian Daily Texts

June 19, 2018

Tuesday, June 19 — Psalm 78:1–8
Numbers 34; Luke 3:1–20

Who observes my ordinances, and follows my statutes; he shall not die for his father’s iniquity. Ezekiel 18:17

You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ. 1 Peter 1:18–19

God of action—we think we know it all. Forgive us such foolishness. Let us ponder your blood, for it is more precious than silver or gold; our children are listening to our words and watching what we do. Amen.
