It is Lent. Luke and Lent kind of go together; only two chapters to read, the first chapter of Luke, and one chapter in Deuteronomy, enjoy!
Luke 1, to Theophilus. The birth of John the Baptist foretold to Zacharias by an Angel, then the angel Gabriel made an announcement to Mary. Mary met Elizabeth, Zacharias’ wife, and stayed with her. Luke 1 also contains Mary’s song, Zacharias’ prophecy and the birth of John the Baptist.
Deuteronomy 23 deals with shunning and exclusion from the assembly, how to deal or not to deal with certain foreigners. Make your relief stations outside the camp and do what you have to do and keep proper camping cleanliness. No harlots allowed and do not accept offerings from them. You may not charge interest to a fellow Israelite, but you can be a Shylock to a foreigner. If you make a vow to the Lord, you better fulfill it!
