Saturday, March 11 — Psalm 35:1–10
Nehemiah 1:1–2:10; Romans 2:17–3:2
Moses said, “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I am commanding you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 11:26-28
Jesus said, “If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love.” John 15:10
Loving God, you have created us so that you can bless us, but sometimes we resist. Sometimes we think of your commandments as roadblocks, not as guardrails on the road. Help us to discover the joy and satisfaction of obeying you. Amen.
