Like New Babies

January, like new babies brings hope. A new beginning, a new start.  Each year I start a bible reading plan to go through the bible in a year, feeding on the Word of God each day and storing it in my heart.  This year I found this commentary on Genesis 11 very interesting, "Terah explicitly intended to enter the land of Canaan. This westward move was significant in view of the general trend of human migration up to this point was eastward and was associated with rebellion, its consequences, and further "distancing" from God (Gn 3:24, 4:16, 10:10-12; 11:2). Thus for a Mesopotamian who desired to "bridge" that distance and so draw as close as possible toward God, Canaan was a perfectly logical destination, being a the end of a direct line westward from Mesopotamia." (Moody Bible Commentary, 2014, pg 68)

As this new year gets underway I want to make sure I am pointed toward Christ, walking in repentance, obedience and faithfulness.
