The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

2 Corinthians 8:1-9

1 Moreover, brethren, we want you to know of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: 2 how in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality. 3 For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing to give of themselves, 4 praying us with earnest entreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of ministering to the saints. 5 And this they did, not as we had hoped, but first they gave themselves to the Lord and unto us by the will of God, 6 insomuch that we urged Titus that, as he had begun, so he would finish in you the same grace also. 7 Therefore as ye abound in everything -- in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us -- see that ye abound in this grace also.

8 I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forthcoming of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love. 9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.

Psalm 146

1 Praise ye the LORD!
Praise the LORD, O my soul! 
2 While I live will I praise the LORD; 
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

3 Put not your trust in princes, 
nor in a son of man in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; 
in that very day his thoughts perish. 

5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, 
whose hope is in the LORD his God, 
6 who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that therein is, 
who keepeth truth for ever; 
7 who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth food to the hungry; 
the LORD looseth the prisoners. 
8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind; 
the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down; the LORD loveth the righteous. 
9 The LORD preserveth the strangers, He relieveth the fatherless and the widow; 
but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down. 

10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. 
Praise ye the LORD!

Words of Worship - John 13:34

A new commandment I give unto you: that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 

Matthew 5:43-48

43 "Ye have heard that it hath been said, `Thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy.' 44 But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that ye may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven. For He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them that love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in Heaven is perfect.


Words of Wisdom - 

Ecclesiastes 12:1-7

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, 
nor the years draw nigh when thou shalt say, "I have no pleasure in them"; 
while neither the sun nor the light, nor the moon nor the stars be darkened, 
nor the clouds return after the rain;
in the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, 
and the strong men shall bow themselves, 
and the grinders cease because they are few, 
and the eyes that look out of the windows be darkened; 
and the doors shall be shut in the streets, 
when the sound of the grinding is low; 
and he shall rise up at the voice of a bird, 
and all the daughters of music shall be brought low; 
also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, 
and fears shall be in the way; 
and the almond tree shall flourish, 
and the grasshopper shall be a burden, 
and desire shall fail; 
because man goeth to his long home, 
and the mourners go about the streets; 
or ever the silver cord be loosed, 
or the golden bowl be broken, 
or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, 
or the wheel broken at the cistern-- 
then shall the dust return to the earth as it was, 
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. 

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.
