Tobit 12:1-20

1 Then Tobit called his son Tobias and said unto him, "My son, see that the man have his wages, who went with thee; and thou must give him more." 2 And Tobias said unto him, "O father, it is no harm to me to give him half of those things which I have brought. 3 For he hath brought me back to thee in safety, and made whole my wife, and brought me the money, and likewise healed thee." 4 Then the old man said, "It is due unto him." 5 So he called the angel, and he said unto him, "Take half of all that ye have brought and go away in safety."

6 Then the angel took them both apart and said unto them, "Bless God, praise Him and magnify Him; and praise Him for the things which He hath done unto you in the sight of all that live. It is good to praise God and exalt His name, and honorably to show forth the works of God; therefore be not slack to praise Him. 7 It is good to keep close the secret of a king, but it is honorable to reveal the works of God. Do that which is good, and no evil shall touch you. 8 Prayer is good with fasting and almsgiving and righteousness; a little with righteousness is better than much with unrighteousness. It is better to give alms than to lay up gold, 9 for almsgiving doth deliver from death, and shall purge away all sin. Those that exercise almsgiving and righteousness shall be filled with life, 10 but they that sin are enemies to their own life.

11 "Surely I will keep close nothing from you. For I said it was good to keep close the secret of a king, but that it was honorable to reveal the works of God. 12 Now therefore, when thou didst pray, and Sarah thy daughter-in-law, I brought the remembrance of your prayers before the Holy One; and when thou didst bury the dead, I was with thee likewise. 13 And when thou didst not delay to rise up and leave thy dinner to go and cover the dead, thy good deed was not hid from me; but I was with thee. 14 And now God hath sent me to heal thee and Sarah thy daughter-in-law. 15 I am Raphael, one of the seven holy angels, who present the prayers of the saints and who go in and out before the glory of the Holy One."

16 Then they were both troubled, and fell upon their faces; for they feared. 17 But he said unto them, "Fear not, for it shall go well with you; praise God therefore. 18 For not of any favor of mine, but by the will of our God I came; therefore praise Him for ever. 19 All these days I appeared unto you; but I did neither eat nor drink, but ye saw a vision. 20 Now therefore give God thanks, for I go up to Him that sent me; but write all things which are done in a book."

Tobit 13:1-8

1 Then Tobit wrote a prayer of rejoicing, and said:
"Blessed be God that liveth for ever, and blessed be His Kingdom.
2 For He doth scourge, and hath mercy; He leadeth down to hell, and bringeth up again; 
neither is there any that can avoid His hand. 

3 "Confess Him before the Gentiles, ye children of Israel; 
for He hath scattered us among them. 
4 There declare His greatness, 
and extol Him before all the living; 
for He is our Lord, 
and He is the God our Father for ever.

5 "And He will scourge us for our iniquities, and will have mercy again, 
and will gather us out of all nations, among whom He hath scattered us. 
6 If ye turn to Him with your whole heart and with your whole mind, and deal uprightly before Him, 
then will He turn unto you, and will not hide His face from you. 
Therefore see what He will do with you; 
and confess Him with your whole mouth, and praise the Lord of might, and extol the everlasting King. 

"In the land of my captivity do I praise Him, 
and declare His might and majesty to a sinful nation. 
O ye sinners, turn and do justice before Him. 
Who can tell if He will accept you and have mercy on you? 

7 "I will extol my God; 
and my soul shall praise the King of heaven, and shall rejoice in His greatness. 
8 Let all men speak, 
and let all praise Him for His righteousness.

Words of Worship - Matthew 5:3

"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Mark 12:35-44

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."

41 And Jesus sat opposite the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury. And many who were rich cast in much. 42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. 43 And He called unto Him His disciples and said unto them,

"Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in than all they that have cast into the treasury; 44 for they all cast in of their abundance, but she of her want cast in all that she had, even all her living."

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 19:16

He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul, 
but he that despiseth His ways shall die.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 4:17

"Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand."
