Human Trafficking - Slavery in Today's World

They may not all be in iron chains. They may not work on plantations. They could live in your state. They could live in your neighborhood. They could live across the street. They could live in your house. They could be your son! Your daughter!

January 21, 2020, DAY 24: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR: Joshua 16-20

January 21, 2020

Then the Lord said to Joshua: 2“Tell the Israelites to designate the cities of refuge, as I instructed you through Moses, 3so that anyone who kills a person accidentally and unintentionally may flee there and find protection from the avenger of blood. 4When they flee to one of these cities, they are to stand in the entrance of the city gate and state their case before the elders of that city. Then the elders are to admit the fugitive into their city and provide a place to live among them. 5If the avenger of blood comes in pursuit, the elders must not surrender the fugitive, because the fugitive killed their neighbor unintentionally and without malice aforethought. 6They are to stay in that city until they have stood trial before the assembly and until the death of the high priest who is serving at that time. Then they may go back to their own home in the town from which they fled.”   (Joshua 20:1-6, NIV)

Journey 2020: Vision For Christ - Planting the Seeds

Yup. We are starting this study off with a double header! And why not?! The parables are related and go together nicely, so let’s get started!

Parable of the Growing Seed
He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
(Mark 4:26-29, NIV)

Parable of the Mustard Seed
Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”  
(Mark 4: 30-32 , NIV) (Also found in Matthew 13:31-32 and Luke 13:18-19)
