Tobit 11:5-17

5 Now Anna sat looking about toward the way for her son. 6 And when she espied him coming, she said to his father, "Behold, thy son cometh, and the man who went with him."

7 Then said Raphael, "I know, Tobias, that thy father will open his eyes. 8 Therefore anoint thou his eyes with the gall; and, being pricked therewith, he shall rub, and the whiteness shall fall away and he shall see thee." 9 Then Anna ran forth and fell upon the neck of her son, and said unto him, "Seeing I have seen thee, my son, from henceforth I am content to die." And they wept both. 10 Tobit also went forth toward the door, and stumbled. But his son ran unto him, 11 and took hold of his father; and he stroked the gall on his father's eyes, saying, "Be of good hope, my father." 12 And when his eyes began to smart, he rubbed them; 13 and the whiteness peeled away from the corners of his eyes. And when he saw his son, he fell upon his neck. 14 And he wept and said,

"Blessed art Thou, O God, and blessed is Thy name for ever;
and blessed are all Thine holy angels.
15 For Thou hast scourged, and hast taken pity on me;
for, behold, I see my son Tobias."

And his son went in rejoicing, and told his father the great things that had happened to him in Media. 16 Then Tobit went out to meet his daughter-in-law at the gate of Nineveh, rejoicing and praising God. And those who saw him go marveled, because he had received his sight. 17 But Tobias gave thanks before them, because God had mercy on him. And when he came near to Sarah his daughter-in-law, he blessed her, saying, "Thou art welcome, daughter. God be blessed, who hath brought thee unto us, and blessed be thy father and thy mother." And there was joy among all his brethren who were at Nineveh.

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 14:23b

"If a man love Me, he will keep My words; and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him and make Our abode with him.

Mark 12:35-40

35 And Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple,

"How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David? 36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost:

'The Lord said to my Lord,
"Sit Thou at My right hand
until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool."'

37 David therefore himself calleth Him 'Lord'; and whence is He then his son?"

And the common people heard Him gladly.

38 And He said unto them in His doctrine,

"Beware of the scribes, who love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces, 39 and the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts, 40 who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 11:4

He that observeth the wind shall not sow, 
and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 4:10

"Get thee hence, Satan! For it is written: `Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.'"
