Continuing with Luke and Lent today there are one chapter of Luke to read, but also two chapters of Deuteronomy.
Luke 2 is so well known that even the Peanuts tell of the Birth of Jesus and the Shepherds and the Angels. Beginning in 2015 many school districts banned it because of the biblical quotes. Some replaced it with Frosty the Snowman, something we all can believe in. The chapter continues with telling of Jesus in the Temple, Simeon’s and Anna’s testimonies, and Jesus at age 12, also in the Temple. Read it and marvel.
Deuteronomy 24 tells of Divorce Laws and limitations for remarriage, Leprosy, Lending Laws, how to properly pay workmen, and after harvest please leave the gleanings.
Deuteronomy 25 tells of the marriage duty of a surviving brother, how to weigh with honest measures, and, totally unrelated, destroy the Amalekites.
