February 14, read through the Bible in a year.

Today there are three chapters.

February 14: Matthew 19, Leviticus 13, Leviticus 14 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Matthew 19 is relatively short but contains some of the most important aspects of life, such as marriage and divorce. “What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.” Then the jewel “Let the little children come to me…” After that a rich young ruler asks what good thing he must do to get eternal life. Jesus answer “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God,” in other words impossible. But cheer up, “with God all things are possible.” And God’s pecking order is not economic or based on power. Instead, sometimes “the first shall be last, and the last shall be first.” There are many idioms in the English language taken from the Bible. Yet the origin is not allowed to be mentioned in public schools. Ponder that.

Leviticus 13 and Leviticus 14 deal with leprosy and mildew and what to do with both. Things like that are complicated.
