The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

1 Kings 17:8-24

8 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, 9 "Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee." 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering sticks; and he called to her and said, "Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink." 11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her and said, "Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand." 12 And she said, "As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in a barrel and a little oil in a cruse. And behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it and die." 13 And Elijah said unto her, "Fear not; go and do as thou hast said, but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and afterward make for thee and for thy son. 14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel: `The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.'" 15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah, and she and he and her house ate for many days. 16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD which He spoke by Elijah.

17 And it came to pass after these things that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore that there was no breath left in him. 18 And she said unto Elijah, "What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? Art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance and to slay my son?" 19 And he said unto her, "Give me thy son." And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. 20 And he cried unto the LORD and said, "O LORD my God, hast Thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn by slaying her son?" 21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD and said, "O LORD my God, I pray Thee, let this child's soul come into him again!" 22 And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. 23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother; and Elijah said, "See, thy son liveth." 24 And the woman said to Elijah, "Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth."

Psalm 4

1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
Thou hast set me at large when I was in distress;
have mercy upon me,
and hear my prayer.
2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
How long will ye love vanity and seek after lies?

3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for Himself;
the LORD will hear when I call unto Him.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not;
commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
and put your trust in the LORD.
6 There are many that say, "Who will show us any good?"
LORD, lift Thou up the light of Thy countenance upon us.
7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart,
more than in the time when their corn and wine increased.
8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep;
for Thou LORD only, makest me dwell in safety.

Words of Worship - Matthew 5:16

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.

Matthew 5:13-16

13 "Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.

14 "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 19:23

The fear of the LORD tendeth to life, and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; 
he shall not be visited with evil.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 5:21-22

"Ye have heard that it was said by them of old, `Thou shalt not kill,' and `Whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.' But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, `Raca,' shall be in danger of the council; but whosoever shall say, `Thou fool,' shall be in danger of hell fire.
