Today's Readings

Ah more readings below (Tue 4 Dec):

Luke 10: 21-24
On that same occasion Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will. All things have been given to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides to reveal him.”
Then Jesus turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”

Isaiah 11: 1-10
A shoot will grow out of Jesse’s root stock,
a bud will sprout from his roots.
The Lord’s spirit will rest on him–
a spirit that gives extraordinary wisdom,
a spirit that provides the ability to execute plans,
a spirit that produces absolute loyalty to the Lord.
He will take delight in obeying the Lord.
He will not judge by mere appearances or make decisions on the basis of hearsay.
He will treat the poor fairly and make right decisions for the downtrodden of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth and order the wicked to be executed.
Justice will be like a belt around his waist,
integrity will be like a belt around his hips.
A wolf will reside with a lamb,
and a leopard will lie down with a young goat;
an ox and a young lion will graze together, as a small child leads them along.
A cow and a bear will graze together, their young will lie down together.
A lion, like an ox, will eat straw.
A baby will play over the hole of a snake;
over the nest of a serpent an infant will put his hand.
They will no longer injure or destroy on my entire royal mountain.
For there will be universal submission to the Lord’s sovereignty,
just as the waters completely cover the sea.
At that time a root from Jesse will stand like a signal flag for the nations.
Nations will look to him for guidance, and his residence will be majestic.
