Most merciful God,

I have not loved you with my whole heart;
I have not loved my neighbors as myself.
I am truly sorry and I humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on me and forgive me;
that I may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Come, let us sing to the Lord; *

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *
   and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, *
   and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth, *
   and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it, *
   and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *
   and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. *
    Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

Psalm 87

(1) He has set his foundation on the holy mountain; (2) the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. (3) Glorious things are said of you, O city of God: Selah (4) "I will record Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me-- Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush--and will say, 'This one was born in Zion.'"

(5) Indeed, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her." (6) The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion." Selah (7) As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."

Psalm 90

(1) Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. (2) Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (3) You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men." (4) For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.

(5) You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning-- (6) though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered. (7) We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation. (8) You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.

(9) All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan. (10) The length of our days is seventy years-- or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. (11) Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you. (12) Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

(13) Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. (14) Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. (15) Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble. (16) May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.

(17) May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands.

Joel 3

(9) Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack. (10) Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weakling say, 'I am strong!' (11) Come quickly, all you nations from every side, and assemble there. Bring down your warriors, O LORD! (12) 'Let the nations be roused; let them advance into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit to judge all the nations on every side.

(13) Swing the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, trample the grapes, for the winepress is full and the vats overflow-- so great is their wickedness!' (14) Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. (15) The sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars no longer shine. (16) The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the sky will tremble. But the LORD will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.

(17) 'Then you will know that I, the LORD your God, dwell in Zion, my holy hill. Jerusalem will be holy; never again will foreigners invade her.

James 2

(1) My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism. (2) Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. (3) If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here's a good seat for you," but say to the poor man, "You stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet," (4) have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

(5) Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? (6) But you have insulted the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? (7) Are they not the ones who are slandering the noble name of him to whom you belong? (8) If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right.

(9) But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. (10) For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. (11) For he who said, "Do not commit adultery," also said, "Do not murder." If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker. (12) Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom,

(13) because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!

Luke 16

(10) "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. (11) So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? (12) And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else's property, who will give you property of your own? (13) "No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money."

(14) The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. (15) He said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight. (16) "The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it. (17) It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law.

(18) "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.


The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

  He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
  He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
