Today's Readings

Some more readings for Tue 13 Nov (which is today):

Luke 17: 7-10
Would any one of you say to your slave who comes in from the field after plowing or shepherding sheep, ‘Come at once and sit down for a meal’? Won’t the master instead say to him, ‘Get my dinner ready, and make yourself ready to serve me while I eat and drink. Then you may eat and drink’? He won’t thank the slave because he did what he was told, will he? So you too, when you have done everything you were commanded to do, should say, ‘We are slaves undeserving of special praise; we have only done what was our duty.’”

Wisdom 2:23 - 3:9
For God created man incorruptible, and in the image of His own likeness. But by the envy of the devil, death came into the world, and they that follow the Devil are doomed to die. But the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and the torment of death shall not touch them. In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die, and their departure was considered terrible evil. They leave us, but it is not a disaster, as they are in peace. And though in the sight of men they suffered torments, their hope is full of immortality. Afflicted in few things, in many they shall be well rewarded: because God has tested them, and found them worthy of himself. As gold in the furnace he has proved them, and like sacrifices offered to him he has received them, and found them worthy to be with him. The just shall shine, and shall run to and fro like sparks among the reeds. They shall judge nations, and rule over people, and their Lord shall reign for ever. They that trust in the Lord shall understand the truth, and they that are faithful in love shall rest in him: for grace and peace is to his chosen people.
