01 Aug Numbers 11:15 (What’s Your Limit?)
“If this is the way you will deal with me, then please do me the favor of killing me at once, so that I need no longer face this distress.” ~ Numbers 11:15 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: In today’s Scripture, Moses apparently reached his limit. He was thoroughly frustrated and at wits’ end trying to pacify the Israelites in the desert, while leading them to the promised land. Moses was so distressed that he was willing to lose his life rather than carry the burden of a complaining people. What’s your limit? What will it take for you to give up on Jesus? Christ has not given up on us. Through prayer we can share our pain with Jesus. He will walk with us and help us carry our burdens with loving compassion. Lord, help me to share my pain with You for Your love is limitless. Amen.
Faith Challenge: What’s your limit? Before you reach it, pray to Jesus to help you carry your burden.

* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% pregnancies). Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize:Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Matt 28:19.
