Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:1-4
Scripture Readings: Isaiah 49:1-7
Scripture Readings: Isaiah 42:1-9
Scripture: Isaiah 35:
This week's scripture reading comes from the Gospel of Luke and recounts the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. The rich man eats sumptuously every day while Lazarus lays starving and dying outside his gate.
In this week’s Gospel lesson from Luke, Jesus calls us to set our priorities in line with God’s priorities—to be ready for the in-breaking of God’s realm, here and now. Get ready!
It's easy to become distracted. Martha's many duties made it all too easy for her to forget the marvelous gift of Jesus's presence. In these summer months of rest, the story of Mary and Martha encourages us to remember the need for the Sabbath. The Sabbath comes as a gift, not so much as a time of rest, but rather as a time of reflection and remembrance that God is in our very midst. What a marvelous gift!
SCRIPTURE: Isaiah 64:1-4, 8; Luke 12:49-50
