The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Numbers 11:4-15

4 And the mixed multitude that was among them fell to lusting. And the children of Israel also wept again and said, "Who shall give us flesh to eat? 5 We remember the fish which we ate in Egypt freely, the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic; 6 but our soul is dried away. There is nothing at all besides this manna before our eyes." 7 And the manna was as coriander seed, and the color thereof as the color of bdellium. 8 And the people went about and gathered it, and ground it in mills or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans and made cakes of it; and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil. 9 And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it. 

10 Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families, every man in the door of his tent. And the anger of the LORD was kindled greatly; Moses also was displeased. 11 And Moses said unto the LORD, "Why hast Thou afflicted Thy servant? And why have I not found favor in Thy sight, that Thou layest the burden of all this people upon me? 12 Have I conceived all this people? Have I begotten them, that Thou shouldest say unto me, `Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which Thou swearest unto their fathers'? 13 From whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? For they weep unto me, saying, `Give us flesh, that we may eat.' 14 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. 15 And if Thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray Thee, out of hand, if I have found favor in Thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness!"

Psalm 81

1 Sing aloud unto God our strength;
make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel,
the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
3 Blow the trumpet in the new moon,
at the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
4 For this was a statute for Israel,
and a law of the God of Jacob.
5 This He ordained in Joseph as a testimony, when He went out through the land of Egypt,
where I heard a language that I understood not:
6 "I removed his shoulder from the burden;
his hands were delivered from the pots.
7 Thou called in trouble, and I delivered thee;
I answered thee in the secret place of thunder. I tested thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah
8 Hear, O My people, and I will testify unto thee,
O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto Me!
9 There shall be no strange god among thee;
neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
10 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt.
Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11 "But My people would not hearken to My voice,
and Israel would have none of Me.
12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust,
and they walked in their own counsels.
13 Oh that My people had hearkened unto Me,
and Israel had walked in My ways!
14 I should soon have subdued their enemies,
and turned My hand against their adversaries."

15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto Him,
but their time should have endured for ever.
16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat,
and, "With honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee."

Words of Worship - John 1:49b

"Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God; Thou art the King of Israel."

Matthew 14:22-36

22 And straightway Jesus constrained His disciples to get into a boat and to go before Him unto the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up onto a mountain apart to pray. And when evening had come, He was there alone. 24 But the boat was now in the midst of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. 25 And in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, "It is a spirit"; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spoke unto them, saying,

"Be of good cheer. It is I; be not afraid."

28 And Peter answered Him and said, "Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water." 29 And He said,

"Come."

And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, "Lord, save me!" 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand and caught him and said unto him,

"O thou of little faith, why didst thou doubt?"

32 And when they had come into the boat, the wind ceased. 33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, "In truth Thou art the Son of God."

34 And when they had gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret. 35 And when the men of that place learned of Him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto Him all who were diseased. 36 And they besought Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched were made perfectly whole.


Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 8:7

And if a man love righteousness, her labors are virtues; for she teacheth temperance and prudence, justice and fortitude, which are such things as men can have nothing more profitable in their life.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 13:18-23

"Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower: When any one heareth the Word of the Kingdom and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he that received seed by the wayside. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the Word and at once with joy receiveth it; yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while. For when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the Word, by and by he loses faith. He also that received the seed among the thorns is he that heareth the Word; and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the Word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the Word and understandeth it; who also beareth fruit and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."
