Numbers 6:22-27

22 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 23 "Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, `In this way ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them: 

24 The LORD bless thee and keep thee; 
25 the LORD make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee; 
26 the LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, 
and give thee peace.' 

27 "And they shall put My name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them."

Psalms 67

1 God be merciful unto us and bless us,
and cause His face to shine upon us,
2 that Thy way may be known upon earth,
Thy saving health among all nations.

3 Let the people praise Thee, O God;
let all the people praise Thee.
4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for Thou shalt judge the people righteously and govern the nations upon the earth.
5 Let the people praise Thee, O God;
let all the people praise Thee.
6 Then shall the earth yield her increase;
and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us,
and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.

Galatians 4:1-11 

1 Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth in nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all. 2 But he is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father. 3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. 4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, "Abba, Father." 7 Therefore thou art no more a servant but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. 

8 However that be, then when ye knew not God, ye did service unto those which by nature are not gods. 9 But now after ye have known God, or rather are known by God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements unto which ye desire again to be in bondage? 10 Ye observe days and months and times and years. 11 I am afraid for you, lest I have bestowed upon you labor in vain. 

Words of Worship - Hebrews 1:1-2a

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in times past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, 

Luke 2:15-21

15 And it came to pass, when the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, "Let us now go even unto Bethlehem and see this thing which has come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us." 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the Child, His name was called JESUS, who was so named by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 3:7-8

He that feareth the Lord will honor his father, 
and will do service unto his parents, as to his masters. 
Honor thy father and mother both in word and deed, 
that a blessing may come upon thee from them. 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 6:27-30a

"Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They toil not, neither do they spin, and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Therefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you,
