Tageslosung - Daily Bible Readings

The German Herrnhüter have prepared daily readings of Bible verses called the "Losungen" since 1731. You can reach their site here.

Today's reading was perfect contradiction to the world economic and food crisis:

Der HERR wird zu seinem Volk sagen: Siehe, ich will euch Getreide, Wein und Öl die Fülle schicken, dass ihr genug daran haben sollt. Joel 2.19

In response to his people the Lord said: I am sending you grain, wine, and oil, and you will be satisfied. Joel 2 19

Interesting always to see the German and English against one another like that. Interesting to meditate God's promise of plenty in a world of the huge gap between those who have and those who don't.
