The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Zechariah 8:20-23

20 Thus saith the LORD of hosts: `It shall yet come to pass that there shall come people and the inhabitants of many cities. 21 And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, "Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts. I will go also." 22 Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.'

23 "Thus saith the LORD of hosts: `In those days it shall come to pass that ten men out of all the languages of the nations shall take hold, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, "We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."'"

Psalm 87

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God!

4 "I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know Me;
behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia: `This man was born there.'"

5 And of Zion it shall be said, "This and that man were born in her;
and the Highest Himself shall establish her."
6 The LORD shall count, when He writeth up the people,
that this man was born there.
7 Singers as well as players on instruments shall be there and say,
"All my springs are in thee."

Words of Worship - Psalm 103:21

Bless ye the LORD, all ye His hosts,
ye ministers of His, that do His pleasure.

Matthew 18:1-10

1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, "Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?" 2 And Jesus called a little child unto Him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 and said,

"Verily I say unto you, unless ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in My name, receiveth Me. 6 But whoso shall cause one of these little ones who believe in Me to fall, it were better for him that a millstone were hung about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

7 "Woe unto the world because of offenses! For it must happen that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh. 8 Therefore if thy hand or thy foot cause thee to fall, cut them off and cast them from thee; it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye cause thee to fall, pluck it out and cast it from thee; it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.

10 "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you that in Heaven their angels do always behold the face of My Father who is in Heaven.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 28:4

They that forsake the law praise the wicked,
but such as keep the law contend with them.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 6:30-33

Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not back. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them that love you, what thanks have ye? For sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them that do good to you, what thanks have ye? For sinners also do even the same.
