March 17 – Truly Scared Parents

Numbers 26:1-51
Luke 2:36-52
Psalm 60:1-12
Proverbs 11:15

Numbers 26:11 — This is the mercy of the Lord that overtakes His justice (Exodus 20:6, 34:7).

Luke 2:37 — It has been said that retirement is not found in the Bible. Thankful for senior saints like Anna!

Luke 2:44 — Joseph and Mary were entrusted with the Messiah, and not only had they lost Him, but they didn’t know it until they were already a day’s journey out of Jerusalem. They let the Father down, but Jesus didn’t. He was about the business of His Father (vs. 49).

Psalm 60:9 — Matthew Henry shares:

 Now, (1.) David is here enquiring for help to carry on the ark: “Who will bring me into the strong city? What allies, what auxiliaries, can I depend upon, to make me master of the enemies’ country and their strongholds?’’ Those that have begun a good work cannot but desire to make a thorough work of it, and to bring it to perfection. (2.) He is expecting it from God only.

Proverbs 11:15 — Earlier this year we were warned about being surety for a friend (and we talked about NPR’s story on suretyship). If you didn’t get the message then, Solomon is repeating it!

  1. Question, why did your note say that Joseph and Mary let the Father down, how did they let Him down, Thanks in advance for response to this question.
