Yes, the title means I am still in Luke. Which means I am behind. And I am a bit bummed by being behind because I am now starting the busiest two weeks of work, which just so happen to coincide with when I will be finishing reading through the Bible! I know I can do it with God’s help, and He will keep watch over me these coming weeks. (more on other changes next week!)

So besides still being in Luke, I really am loving it. It’s nice to read the gospels so quickly to really grasp the stories and find new meanings in them the more I read them. For instance, a light was turned on for me when reading the Parable of the Tenants (Luke 20:9-16) multiple times, and I fully understood what Jesus was saying. His parables are incredibly deep, and being able to re-read them through the gospels has been a blessing for me.

Something else that stood out to me was the frequent mention of humbling oneself in order to be exalted, and vice versa. Our culture so encourages exalting oneself, yet more often than not, those who encourage that are not realizing that life on earth will be gone in a blink of an eye, and life after death is more important! I often plan large events and enjoy being in the background, (which is a good thing, as the people I plan events for don’t know me!), yet I do enjoy receiving compliments if everything went smoothly. I don’t however, want to toot my own horn, and I thank God for the constant lessons in humility he gives me!

And that, my friends, is it for this evening, as I have a lot of reading to do! Congratulations goes out to the reader who finished a couple days ago- I saw it pass by on twitter. Can’t say that I wasn’t a tad bit jealous (there goes that humble thing again!) I pray that your reading is going well. We’re almost done!!!!
