February is the only month to have a length of fewer than 30 days! Though it is usually 28 days, February is 29 days long in leap years such as 2020 and 2024.

Can you add some more facts about February?  (Your birthday doesn’t count).

OK, let’s get a little more serious.  There are some facts from the Bible we all should know.  For instance:

5. When the Promised Land was divided among the tribes of Israel, which tribe settled on the area which included Jerusalem?
6. Which city took seriously as the “temple keeper of the great Artemis”?
7. What was the occupation of Aquila and Priscilla?
8. Where did the apostle Paul live for two years at his own expense, proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ?
9. What does the Lord want from His people instead of festivals, “solemn assemblies” and offerings?
10. How does Jesus say charity should be given?

Jesus said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me” (Luke 9:23, NKJV).
