The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Jeremiah 17:5-10

5 Thus saith the LORD: "Cursed be the man that trusteth in man and maketh flesh his arm, 
and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 
6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, 
but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 

7 "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, 
and whose hope the LORD is. 
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, 
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, 
and shall not see when heat cometh, 
but her leaf shall be green; 
and shall not be disquieted in the year of drought, 
neither shall cease from yielding fruit." 
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; 
who can know it? 

10 "I, the LORD, search the heart; 
I try the reins, 
even to give every man according to his ways, 
and according to the fruit of his doings." 

Psalm 1

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful;
2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on His law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so,
but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous,
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Words of Worship - Luke 8:15

But that on the good ground are they that, in an honest and good heart, having heard the Word, keep it and bring forth fruit with patience.

Luke 16:19-31

19 "There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, who was laid at his gate, full of sores 21 and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried. 23 And in hell, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, `Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.' 25 But Abraham said, `Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime received thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and thou art tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that they who would pass from here to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from there.' 27 Then he said, `I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house, 28 for I have five brethren, that he may testify unto them lest they also come into this place of torment.' 29 Abraham said unto him, `They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' 30 And he said, `Nay, father Abraham; but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.' 31 And Abraham said unto him, `If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead.'"


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 12:16

An enemy speaketh sweetly with his lips, but in his heart he imagineth how to throw thee into a pit. He will weep with his eyes, but if he find opportunity, he will not be satisfied with blood.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 6:27-29

"But I say unto you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
