Bible Reading Plan for Week of November 29

We all face temptation every day.  Even Jesus faced temptations.  In Matthew 4:1-11 when Jesus was tempted in the wilderness He responded with “It is written…”  Then he quoted a passage in Deuteronomy to combat the temptation.  Jesus was able to fight against the temptation to sin because He knew the Word of God.  This week spend time reading, meditating on, and memorizing Scripture so you can fight temptations to sin as well.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on…
