Matthew 18:1-6
1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2 Then he called a little child over to sit among the disciples, 3 and said, “I assure you that if you don't turn your lives around and become like this little child, you will definitely not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Those who humble themselves like this little child will be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
6 “As for whoever causes these little ones who believe in me to trip and fall into sin, it would be better for them to have a huge stone hung around their necks and be drowned in the bottom of the lake.

    Mark 10:32-45
    32 Jesus and his disciples were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, with Jesus in the lead. The disciples were amazed while the others following behind were afraid. Taking the Twelve aside again, he told them what was about to happen to him. 33 “Look!” he said. “We're going up to Jerusalem. The Human One will be handed over to the chief priests and the legal experts. They will condemn him to death and hand him over to the Gentiles. 34 They will ridicule him, spit on him, torture him, and kill him. After three days, he will rise up.” 35 James and John, Zebedee's sons, came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask.” 36 “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. 37 They said, “Allow one of us to sit on your right and the other on your left when you enter your glory.” 38 Jesus replied, “You don't know what you're asking! Can you drink the cup I drink or receive the baptism I receive?” 39 “We can,” they answered. Jesus said, “You will drink the cup I drink and receive the baptism I receive, 40 but to sit at my right or left hand isn't mine to give. It belongs to those for whom it has been prepared.” 41 Now when the other ten disciples heard about this, they became angry with James and John. 42 Jesus called them over and said, “You know that the ones who are considered the rulers by the Gentiles show off their authority over them and their high-ranking officials order them around. 43 But that's not the way it will be with you. Whoever wants to be great among you will be your servant. 44 Whoever wants to be first among you will be the slave of all, 45 for the Human One didn't come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many people.”

    Isaiah 35:1-10
    1 The desert and the dry land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom like the crocus.
    2 They will burst into bloom, and rejoice with joy and singing.
    They will receive the glory of Lebanon, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon.
    They will see the LORD's glory, the splendor of our God.
    3 Strengthen the weak hands, and support the unsteady knees.
    4 Say to those who are panicking: “Be strong! Don't fear!
    Here's your God, coming with vengeance; with divine retribution God will come to save you.”
    5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf will be cleared.
    6 Then the lame will leap like the deer, and the tongue of the speechless will sing.
    Waters will spring up in the desert, and streams in the wilderness.
    7 The burning sand will become a pool, and the thirsty ground, fountains of water.
    The jackals' habitat, a pasture; grass will become reeds and rushes.
    8 A highway will be there. It will be called The Holy Way.
    The unclean won't travel on it, but it will be for those walking on that way.
    Even fools won't get lost on it; 9 no lion will be there, and no predator will go up on it.
    None of these will be there; only the redeemed will walk on it.
    10 The LORD's ransomed ones will return and enter Zion with singing,
    with everlasting joy upon their heads. Happiness and joy will overwhelm them;
    grief and groaning will flee away.
     
    James 5:7-10
    7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don't complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won't be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door! 10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.

    Isaiah 11:1-10
    A shoot will grow up from the stump of Jesse;
    a branch will sprout from his roots.
    The LORD's spirit will rest upon him,
    a spirit of wisdom and understanding,
    a spirit of planning and strength,
    a spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD.
    He will delight in fearing the LORD.
    He won't judge by appearances,
    nor decide by hearsay.
    He will judge the needy with righteousness,
    and decide with equity for those who suffer in the land.
    He will strike the violent with the rod of his mouth;
    by the breath of his lips he will kill the wicked.
    Righteousness will be the belt around his hips,
    and faithfulness the belt around his waist.
    The wolf will live with the lamb,
    and the leopard will lie down with the young goat;
    the calf and the young lion will feed together,
    and a little child will lead them.
    The cow and the bear will graze.
    Their young will lie down together,
    and a lion will eat straw like an ox.
    A nursing child will play over the snake's hole;
    toddlers will reach right over the serpent's den.
    They won't harm or destroy anywhere on my holy mountain.
    The earth will surely be filled with the knowledge of the LORD,
    just as the water covers the sea.
    On that day, the root of Jesse will stand as a signal to the peoples.
    The nations will seek him out, and his dwelling will be glorious.

    Romans 13:11-14
    11 As you do all this, you know what time it is. The hour has already come for you to wake up from your sleep. Now our salvation is nearer than when we first had faith. 12 The night is almost over, and the day is near. So let's get rid of the actions that belong to the darkness and put on the weapons of light. 13 Let's behave appropriately as people who live in the day, not in partying and getting drunk, not in sleeping around and obscene behavior, not in fighting and obsession. 14 Instead, dress yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ, and don't plan to indulge your selfish desires.

    Luke 23:33-43
    33 When they arrived at the place called The Skull, they crucified him, along with the criminals, one on his right and the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they're doing.” They drew lots as a way of dividing up his clothing. 35 The people were standing around watching, but the leaders sneered at him, saying, “He saved others. Let him save himself if he really is the Christ sent from God, the chosen one.” 36 The soldiers also mocked him. They came up to him, offering him sour wine 37 and saying, “If you really are the king of the Jews, save yourself.” 38 Above his head was a notice of the formal charge against him. It read “This is the king of the Jews.” 39 One of the criminals hanging next to Jesus insulted him: “Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!” 40 Responding, the other criminal spoke harshly to him, “Don't you fear God, seeing that you've also been sentenced to die? 41 We are rightly condemned, for we are receiving the appropriate sentence for what we did. But this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43 Jesus replied, “I assure you that today you will be with me in paradise.”

    2 Thessalonians 3:6-18
    6 Brothers and sisters, we command you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to stay away from every brother or sister who lives an undisciplined life that is not in line with the traditions that you received from us. 7 You yourselves know how you need to imitate us because we were not undisciplined when we were with you. 8 We didn't eat anyone's food without paying for it. Instead, we worked night and day with effort and hard work so that we would not impose on you. 9 We did this to give you an example to imitate, not because we didn't have a right to insist on financial support. 10 Even when we were with you we were giving you this command: “If anyone doesn't want to work, they shouldn't eat.” 11 We hear that some of you are living an undisciplined life. They aren't working, but they are meddling in other people's business. 12 By the Lord Jesus Christ, we command and encourage such people to work quietly and put their own food on the table. 13 Brothers and sisters, don't get discouraged in doing what is right. 14 Take note of anyone who doesn't obey what we have said in this letter. Don't associate with them so they will be ashamed of themselves. 15 Don't treat them like enemies, but warn them like you would do for a brother or sister. 16 May the Lord of peace himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with all of you. 17 I, Paul, am writing this greeting with my own hand. This verifies that the letter is from me, as in every letter of mine. This is how I write. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with all of you.

    1 Timothy 6:6-21
    6 Actually, godliness is a great source of profit when it is combined with being happy with what you already have. 7 We didn't bring anything into the world and so we can't take anything out of it: 8 we'll be happy with food and clothing. 9 But people who are trying to get rich fall into temptation. They are trapped by many stupid and harmful passions that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some have wandered away from the faith and have impaled themselves with a lot of pain because they made money their goal. 11 But as for you, man of God, run away from all these things. Instead, pursue righteousness, holy living, faithfulness, love, endurance, and gentleness. 12 Compete in the good fight of faith. Grab hold of eternal life—you were called to it, and you made a good confession of it in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I command you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and Christ Jesus, who made the good confession when testifying before Pontius Pilate. 14 Obey this order without fault or failure until the appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 The timing of this appearance is revealed by God alone, who is the blessed and only master, the King of kings and Lord of lords. 16 He alone has immortality and lives in light that no one can come near. No human being has ever seen or is able to see him. Honor and eternal power belong to him. Amen. 17 Tell people who are rich at this time not to become egotistical and not to place their hope on their finances, which are uncertain. Instead, they need to hope in God, who richly provides everything for our enjoyment. 18 Tell them to do good, to be rich in the good things they do, to be generous, and to share with others. 19 When they do these things, they will save a treasure for themselves that is a good foundation for the future. That way they can take hold of what is truly life. 20 Timothy, protect what has been given to you in trust. Avoid godless and pointless discussions and the contradictory claims of so-called “knowledge.” 21 When some people adopted this false knowledge, they missed the goal of faith. May grace be with you all.
