I would like take this time to thank you for reading and liking the posts. This blog started from a life transformation group several years ago with just a few followers and now has grown to over 1,945 followers. I’ve found it to be a great tool in my journey through the Bible and you, my readers are holding me accountable to daily Bible reading and study.
We live in a busy world with busy schedules and being able to share some thoughts about this journey with others across this world through the Internet is truly a blessing. Questions for Reflection will stimulate thought and offer ideas for applying biblical principles at work, at home, and in all we do.
Here is a link to all the devotionals done so far.

The reading plan below will be used to hold me accountable to sharing about God’s word. As I share about my study of the book of Numbers over the next few weeks, it’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Christ as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day amazing!
Questions for Reflection
Numbers 1 – 2
What does God command Moses to do? How does the numbering show the Lord’s concern for individuals? What are the Levites’ tasks? Why aren’t they numbered? To what extent is organization important to God?
What are the two main functions of the Levites? What are Moses, Aaron, and his sons responsible for? To what extent are you as careful in defining and attending to your spiritual responsibilities as Moses and Aaron are in this chapter?
What are the duties assigned to the Levites? How is such detail and teamwork demonstrated in your church fellowship or small group? Why do you think such detail was given to the tent of meeting and its contents? How do you handle directions given by those in authority over you?
How are uncleanness and defilement dealt with in this chapter? What are the reasons God’s presence and defilement cannot co-exist? What are the results when truth is the standard?
What are the three main instructions for the person who wants to make the Nazarite vow? What is the remedy for involuntary breaking of the oath? Why do you think the requirements are so strict? What is the procedure when the time of the Nazarite’s separation is complete?
Numbers 6:22 through 7:89
What promises are given in the blessing of verses 24-26? What does the detail of verses 12-88 show of God’s concern for worship and offering to him? In what specific ways are you learning to walk in obedience to God day by day?
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
