Today's Readings

Today I didn't forget, for here are today's readings (Thu 15 Nov):

Luke 17: 20-25
Now at one point the Pharisees asked Jesus when the kingdom of God was coming, so he answered, “The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed, nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is in your midst.” Then he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. Then people will say to you, ‘Look, there he is!’ or ‘Look, here he is!’ Do not go out or chase after them. For just like the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

Wisom 7:22 - 8:1
For wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me- in her is the spirit of understanding, holy, of one nature but reveals itself in many ways, not made of any material substance, moves about freely, clear, undefiled, sure, not subject to hurt, loving that which is good, quick and unconquerable, ready to do good, kind to man, steadfast, sure, free from care, having all power, overseeing all things, and containing all intelligent and pure spirits. For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passes and goes through all things by reason of her pureness. For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore no defiled thing comes into her. For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of his goodness. And though she acts alone, she can do all things. She makes all things new, and in all ages entering into holy souls, making them friends of God and prophets. For God loves none but him that is at home with wisdom. She is more beautiful than the sun and all the constellations. She is better than light itself- for though night always follows day, evil shall not prevail against wisdom. Wisdom reaches into every part of the world mightily, and she sets all things in useful order.
