The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

1 Kings 11:29-33

29 And it came to pass at that time when Jeroboam went out of Jerusalem, that the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite found him in the way; and he had clad himself with a new garment, and the two were alone in the field. 30 And Ahijah caught the new garment that was on him, and rent it in twelve pieces. 31 And he said to Jeroboam, "Take thee ten pieces; for thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: `Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee 32 (but he shall have one tribe for My servant David's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel), 33 because they have forsaken Me and have worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in My ways to do that which is right in Mine eyes, and to keep My statutes and My judgments, as did David his father.

1 Kings 12:16-19

16 So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, "What portion have we in David? Neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse. To your tents, O Israel! Now see to thine own house, David!" So Israel departed unto their tents.

17 But as for the children of Israel who dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them. 18 Then King Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the tribute; and all Israel stoned him with stones so that he died. Therefore King Rehoboam made haste to get up to his chariot to flee to Jerusalem. 19 So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.

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 - Acts 16:14b

...and the Lord opened her heart to give heed unto the things which were spoken by Paul. 

Mark 7:31-37 

31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, He came unto the Sea of Galilee through the midst of the region of Decapolis. 32 And they brought unto Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they besought Him to put His hand upon him. 33 And He took him aside from the multitude and put His fingers into his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue. 34 And looking up to Heaven, He sighed and said unto him, 


that is, "Be opened." 35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the bond of his tongue was loosed and he spoke plainly. 36 And He charged them that they should tell no man. But the more He charged them, the more widely they proclaimed it 37 and were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He hath done all things well; he maketh both the deaf to hear and the dumb to speak."

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 11:

A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, 
but a just weight is His delight.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 10:24-25a

"The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord.
