Tuesday of the Fourth Week in Kingdomtide
Gideon and the Woolen Fleece
We encounter the man of valor who named the Gideons. Just as Gideon went into the camp of the enemy, so do the Gideons go into “camps” where the Enemy might be at work, with the prayerful hope that the Word of God would move mightily upon the lives of people away from their home.
Note the contrasts in the Book of Judges. There are mighty “Lone Ranger” types with a mission from the Lord; then there are the people who lapse right back into idolatry. The theme is constant in the Old Testament—God’s chosen love and the unfaithful response of the people.
Are you being faithful to the Lord and all that God calls you to be?
Tuesdays are dedicated to Old Testament history and “The Writings.”
In the seasons of Advent to Epiphany this year we read the Book of Judges followed by a few chapters of Proverbs.
