Yesterday we heard of David’s grandson, Rehoboam, and the unfortunate start to his reign. The northern tribes revolted and went with Jeroboam. Rehoboam seems to have made wise choices after that, at least for a short time.

Today’s highlighted verse:

Pro. 29:23 NLT Pride ends in humiliation, while humility brings honor.

Yesterday’s reading included the judgements against the cities that refused to repent even though they witnessed Jesus’ miracles. Chapter 11 also includes Jesus’ prayer of thanksgiving, and closes with Jesus’ famous words:

Mat. 11:28 NLT “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 
29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 
30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

NLT Translation notes:
Mat. 12:1 At about that time Jesus was walking through some grainfields on the Sabbath. [We, ] His disciples were hungry, so they began breaking off some heads of grain and eating them. 
17 This fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah concerning him: [where God said]
