The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons 

1 Kings 11:1-13

1 But King Solomon loved many foreign women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites-- 2 from the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, "Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you; for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods." Solomon cleaved unto these in love. 3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart. 4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods; and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. 5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. 6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father. 7 Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, on the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech the abomination of the children of Ammon. 8 And likewise did he for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and sacrificed unto their gods.

9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, who had appeared unto him twice 10 and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods; but he kept not that which the LORD commanded. 11 Therefore the LORD said unto Solomon, "Forasmuch as this is done by thee, and thou hast not kept My covenant and My statutes which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee and will give it to thy servant. 12 Notwithstanding, I will not do it in thy days for David thy father's sake; but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son. 13 However I will not rend away all the kingdom, but will give one tribe to thy son for David My servant's sake and for Jerusalem's sake which I have chosen."

Psalm 106:1-23 

1 Praise ye the LORD! O give thanks unto the LORD, 
for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.

2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? 
Who can show forth all His praise? 
3 Blessed are they that keep judgment 
and he that doeth righteousness at all times. 

4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favor which Thou bearest unto Thy people; 
O visit me with Thy salvation, 
5 that I may see the good of Thy chosen, 
that I may rejoice in the gladness of Thy nation, 
that I may glory with Thine inheritance. 

6 We have sinned with our fathers, 
we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. 
7 Our fathers understood not Thy wonders in Egypt; 
they remembered not the multitude of Thy mercies, but provoked Thee at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name's sake, 
that He might make His mighty power to be known. 
9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; 
so He led them through the depths, as through the wilderness. 
10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, 
and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 
11 And the waters covered their enemies; there was not one of them left. 
12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise. 

13 They soon forgot His works; they waited not for His counsel, 
14 but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 
15 And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul. 
16 They also envied Moses in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. 
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 
18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 

19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped the molten image. 
20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. 
21 They forgot God their Savior, 
who had done great things in Egypt, 
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, 
and fearsome things by the Red Sea. 
23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach, 
to turn away His wrath, lest He should destroy them.

Words of Worship - James 1:21

Therefore lay apart all filthiness and the superfluity of wickedness, and receive with meekness the engrafted Word, which is able to save your souls.

Mark 7:24-30 

24 And from thence He arose and went into the region of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into a house, and would have no man know about it; but He could not be hid. 25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of Him, and came and fell at His feet. 26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by nation, and she besought Him that He would cast forth the devil out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said unto her, 

"Let the children first be filled, for it is not meet to take the children's bread and to cast it unto the dogs." 

28 And she answered and said unto Him, "Yes, Lord, yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs." 29 And He said unto her, 

"For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter." 

30 And when she had come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed. 

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 3:15

That which hath been is now, and that which is to be hath already been; 
and God requireth that which is past. 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 9:37

Then said He unto His disciples,

"The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.
