The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 58:9b-14

9b If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, 
the putting forth of the finger and speaking vanity, 
10 and if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry 
and satisfy the afflicted soul, 
then shall thy light rise in obscurity 
and thy darkness be as the noonday. 
11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, 
and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones; 
and thou shalt be like a watered garden, 
and like a spring of water whose waters fail not. 
12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places; 
thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations, and thou shalt be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Paths to dwell in. 
13 "If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on My holy day, 
and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable, 
and shalt honor Him, not doing thine own ways, 
nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words, 
14 then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; 
and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, 
and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father;
for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it."

Psalm 86 

1 Bow down Thine ear, O LORD; 
hear me, for I am poor and needy. 
2 Preserve my soul, for I am holy; 
O Thou my God, save Thy servant that trusteth in Thee. 
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord, 
for I cry unto Thee daily. 
4 Make the soul of Thy servant rejoice, 
for unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 
5 For Thou, Lord, art good and ready to forgive, 
and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee. 
6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; 
and attend to the voice of my supplications. 
7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon Thee, 
for Thou wilt answer me.

8 Among the gods there is none like unto Thee, O Lord; 
neither are there any works like unto Thy works. 
9 All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, O Lord, 
and shall glorify Thy name. 
10 For Thou art great and doest wondrous things: 
Thou alone art God.

11 Teach me Thy way, O LORD; I will walk in Thy truth; 
unite my heart to fear Thy name. 
12 I will praise Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, 
and I will glorify Thy name for evermore. 
13 For great is Thy mercy toward me, 
and Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

14 O God, the proud have risen against me, 
and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul, and have not set Thee before them. 
15 But Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, 
gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. 
16 O turn unto me and have mercy upon me; 
give Thy strength unto Thy servant, and save the son of Thine handmaid. 
17 Show me a token for good, that they that hate me may see it and be ashamed, 
because Thou, LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.

Words of Worship - Ezekiel 33:11

Say unto them: `As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?'

Luke 5:27-32

27 And after these things He went forth and saw a publican named Levi, sitting in the customhouse, and He said unto him,

"Follow Me."

28 And he left all, rose up, and followed Him.

29 And Levi made Him a great feast in his own house, and there was a great company of publicans and of others who sat down with them. 30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against His disciples, saying, "Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?" 31 And Jesus answering said unto them,

"They that are whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. 
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow. 
But woe to him that is alone when he falleth, 
for he hath not another to help him up.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 13:24-30

Another parable put He forth before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blades had sprung up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, `Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath come the tares?' He said unto them, `An enemy hath done this.' The servants said unto him, `Wilt thou then have us go and gather them up?' But he said, `Nay, lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."'"
