Today’s Reading: Ezra 7:1‐8:20, 1 Corinthians 4:1‐21, Psalm 30:1‐12, Proverbs 20:28‐30
Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.
- Context: Ezra is leaving Babylonia to go to Jerusalem to teach the people of Israel. He is described as “a scribe skilled in the Law of Moses.”
- Ezra had set his heart:
- To study the Law of the Lord
- To do it
- To teach the Lord’s statues and rules in Israel
I love how Ezra’s heart is described in this verse. The teachers that I have learned from the most are those who are studying and applying the Word of God to their own lives as they teach.
Apply: I want to set my heart to study, do and teach God’s Word.
Could this verse be used to describe you?
