The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

James 1:19-27

19 Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 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.

22 But be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he beholdeth himself, and then goeth his way and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

26 If any man among you seem to be religious and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. 27 Pure religion, undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Psalm 15

1 LORD, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle?
Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness,
and speaketh the truth in his heart;
3 he that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor,
nor spreadeth a reproach against his neighbor;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is contemned,
but he honoreth them that fear the LORD;
he that taketh an oath to his own hurt,
and changeth not;
5 he that putteth not out his money to usury,
nor taketh a bribe against the innocent.
He that doeth these things
shall never be moved.

Words of Worship - Ephesians 1:17-18

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened, that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

Mark 8:22-26 

22 And He came to Bethsaida, and they brought a blind man unto Him, and besought Him to touch him. 23 And He took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands upon him, He asked him if he saw anything. 24 And he looked up and said, "I see men as trees, walking." 25 After that He put His hands again upon his eyes and made him look up; and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. 26 And He sent him away to his house, saying, 

"Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 4:5-6

The fool foldeth his hands together 
and eateth his own flesh.
Better is a handful with quietness, 
than both the hands full with travail and vexation of the spirit.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 21:28-32

even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life as a ransom for many."

And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And behold, two blind men were sitting by the wayside when they heard that Jesus was passing by, and they cried out, saying, "Have mercy on us, O Lord, Thou Son of David!" And the multitude rebuked them, that they should hold their peace; but they cried out the more, saying, "Have mercy on us, O Lord, Thou Son of David!" And Jesus stood still, and called them and said,

"What will ye that I shall do unto you?"
