On February 29, 2012, we will review Numbers Chapters 6-14. Remember: THREE-A-DAY IS THE EASIET WAY! There are 1,189 Chapters in the Bible and to read the whole Bible in 52 Weeks, one must read an average of 3.25 Chapters every day!
In Week eight, we continue looking at the Book of Numbers. In this part of Numbers we find one of the best known benedictions in the Bible and one of best known stories about how to confront giants in our lives. We will also find out why the Israelites were forced to spend 40 years wandering in the desert before going into the Promised Land. This is a great book.
