The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

2 Timothy 4:1-8

1 I charge thee therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at His appearing and His Kingdom: 2 preach the Word; be instant in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but having itching ears, they shall heap to themselves teachers in accordance with their own lusts. 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned toward fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill thy ministry. 

6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course; I have kept the faith. 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me on that Day -- and not to me only, but unto all those also who love His appearing.

Psalm 71 

1 In Thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; 
let me never be put to confusion. 
2 Deliver me in Thy righteousness, and cause me to escape; 
incline Thine ear unto me, and save me. 
3 Be Thou my strong habitation, 
whereunto I may continually resort; 
Thou hast given commandment to save me, 
for Thou art my rock and my fortress.

4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, 
out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. 
5 For Thou art my hope, O Lord GOD; 
Thou art my trust from my youth. 
6 By Thee have I been held from the womb; Thou art He that took me out of my mother's womb. 
My praise shall be continually of Thee. 
7 I am as a wonder unto many, 
but Thou art my strong refuge. 
8 Let my mouth be filled with Thy praise, 
and with Thy honor all the day.

9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; 
forsake me not when my strength faileth. 
10 For mine enemies speak against me, 
and they that lie in wait for my soul take counsel together, 
11 saying, "God hath forsaken him;
persecute and take him, for there is none to deliver him." 

12 O God, be not far from me; 
O my God, make haste to help me. 
13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; 
let them be covered with reproach and dishonor that seek my hurt. 
14 But I will hope continually 
and will yet praise Thee more and more. 
15 My mouth shall show forth Thy righteousness and Thy salvation all the day, 
for I know not the numbers thereof. 
16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; 
I will make mention of Thy righteousness, even of Thine only. 
17 O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth, 
and hitherto have I declared Thy wondrous works. 
18 Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not, 
until I have shown Thy strength unto this generation and Thy power to every one that is to come. 
19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things. 
O God, who is like unto Thee! 
20 Thou, who hast shown me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, 
and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. 
21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, 
and comfort me on every side.

22 I will also praise Thee with the psaltery for Thy truth, O my God; 
unto Thee will I sing with the harp, O Thou Holy One of Israel. 
23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto Thee, 
and my soul which Thou hast redeemed. 
24 My tongue also shall talk of Thy righteousness all the day long;
for they are confounded, for they are brought to shame that seek my hurt.

Words of Worship - Luke 2:19

But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.

Luke 2:41-52

41 Now His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the Feast. 43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and His mother knew not of it. 44 But they, supposing Him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought Him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances. 45 And when they found Him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46 And it came to pass that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48 And when they saw Him they were amazed, and His mother said unto Him, "Son, why hast Thou thus dealt with us? Behold, Thy father and I have sought Thee sorrowing." 49 And He said unto them,

"How is it that ye sought Me? Knew ye not that I must be about My Father's business?"

50 And they understood not the saying which He spoke unto them. 51 And He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them. But His mother kept all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 19:18

Chasten thy son while there is hope, 
and let not thy soul spare him for his crying.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - 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.
