Matthew 20:1-16

1 “For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who was the master of a household, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. 2 When he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius[1] a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 He went out about the third hour,[2] and saw others standing idle in the marketplace. 4 To them he said, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour,[3] and did likewise. 6 About the eleventh hour[4] he went out, and found others standing idle. He said to them, ‘Why do you stand here all day idle?’
    7 “They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’
    “He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and you will receive whatever is right.’ 8 When evening had come, the lord of the vineyard said to his manager, ‘Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning from the last to the first.’
    9 “When those who were hired at about the eleventh hour came, they each received a denarius. 10 When the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise each received a denarius. 11 When they received it, they murmured against the master of the household, 12 saying, ‘These last have spent one hour, and you have made them equal to us, who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat!’
    13 “But he answered one of them, ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Didn’t you agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take that which is yours, and go your way. It is my desire to give to this last just as much as to you. 15 Isn’t it lawful for me to do what I want to with what I own? Or is your eye evil, because I am good?’ 16 So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few are chosen.”

Luke 12:32-34

32 Don’t be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. 33 Sell that which you have, and give gifts to the needy. Make for yourselves purses which don’t grow old, a treasure in the heavens that doesn’t fail, where no thief approaches, neither moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

2 Corinthians 8:1-9:15

1 Moreover, brothers, we make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the assemblies of Macedonia; 2 how that in much proof of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded to the riches of their liberality. 3 For according to their power, I testify, yes and beyond their power, they gave of their own accord, 4 begging us with much entreaty to receive this grace and the fellowship in the service to the saints. 5 This was not as we had hoped, but first they gave their own selves to the Lord, and to us through the will of God. 6 So we urged Titus, that as he made a beginning before, so he would also complete in you this grace. 7 But as you abound in everything, in faith, utterance, knowledge, all earnestness, and in your love to us, see that you also abound in this grace. 8 I speak not by way of commandment, but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity also of your love. 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that you through his poverty might become rich. 10 I give a judgment in this: for this is expedient for you, who were the first to start a year ago, not only to do, but also to be willing. 11 But now complete the doing also, that as there was the readiness to be willing, so there may be the completion also out of your ability. 12 For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what you have, not according to what you don’t have. 13 For this is not that others may be eased and you distressed, 14 but for equality. Your abundance at this present time supplies their lack, that their abundance also may become a supply for your lack; that there may be equality. 15 As it is written, “He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack.” [1]
    16 But thanks be to God, who puts the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus. 17 For he indeed accepted our exhortation, but being himself very earnest, he went out to you of his own accord. 18 We have sent together with him the brother whose praise in the Good News is known through all the assemblies. 19 Not only so, but who was also appointed by the assemblies to travel with us in this grace, which is served by us to the glory of the Lord himself, and to show our readiness. 20 We are avoiding this, that any man should blame us concerning this abundance which is administered by us. 21 Having regard for honorable things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men. 22 We have sent with them our brother, whom we have many times proved earnest in many things, but now much more earnest, by reason of the great confidence which he has in you. 23 As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker for you. As for our brothers, they are the apostles of the assemblies, the glory of Christ. 24 Therefore show the proof of your love to them in front of the assemblies, and of our boasting on your behalf.

2 Corinthians 9:1-15

1 It is indeed unnecessary for me to write to you concerning the service to the saints, 2 for I know your readiness, of which I boast on your behalf to them of Macedonia, that Achaia has been prepared for a year past. Your zeal has stirred up very many of them. 3 But I have sent the brothers that our boasting on your behalf may not be in vain in this respect, that, just as I said, you may be prepared, 4 so that I won’t by any means, if there come with me any of Macedonia and find you unprepared, we (to say nothing of you) should be disappointed in this confident boasting. 5 I thought it necessary therefore to entreat the brothers that they would go before to you, and arrange ahead of time the generous gift that you promised before, that the same might be ready as a matter of generosity, and not of greediness. 6 Remember this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly. He who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart; not grudgingly, or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that you, always having all sufficiency in everything, may abound to every good work. 9 As it is written,
             “He has scattered abroad, he has given to the poor.
          His righteousness remains forever.” [1]
    10 Now may he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness; 11 you being enriched in everything to all liberality, which works through us thanksgiving to God. 12 For this service of giving that you perform not only makes up for lack among the saints, but abounds also through many givings of thanks to God; 13 seeing that through the proof given by this service, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the Good News of Christ, and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all; 14 while they themselves also, with supplication on your behalf, yearn for you by reason of the exceeding grace of God in you. 15 Now thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift!

Philippians 4:13

13 I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

Psalms 66:1-20

1 {
For the Chief Musician. A song. A Psalm.
             Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
          2 Sing to the glory of his name!
          Offer glory and praise!
             3 Tell God, “How awesome are your deeds!
          Through the greatness of your power, your enemies submit themselves to you.
             4 All the earth will worship you,
          and will sing to you;
          they will sing to your name.”
             {\qr Selah.
             } 5 Come, and see God’s deeds—
          awesome work on behalf of the children of men.
             6 He turned the sea into dry land.
          They went through the river on foot.
          There, we rejoiced in him.
             7 He rules by his might forever.
          His eyes watch the nations.
          Don’t let the rebellious rise up against him.
             {\qr Selah.
             } 8 Praise our God, you peoples!
          Make the sound of his praise heard,
             9 who preserves our life among the living,
          and doesn’t allow our feet to be moved.
             10 For you, God, have tested us.
          You have refined us, as silver is refined.
             11 You brought us into prison.
          You laid a burden on our backs.
             12 You allowed men to ride over our heads.
          We went through fire and through water,
          but you brought us to the place of abundance.
             13 I will come into your temple with burnt offerings.
          I will pay my vows to you, 14 which my lips promised,
          and my mouth spoke, when I was in distress.

Psalms 107:1-2

             Give thanks to Yahweh,[1]
          for he is good,
             for his loving kindness endures forever.
             2 Let the redeemed by Yahweh say so,
          whom he has redeemed from the hand of the adversary,

Psalms 66:15-20

15 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat animals,
          with the offering of rams,
          I will offer bulls with goats.
             {\qr Selah.
             } 16 Come, and hear, all you who fear God.
          I will declare what he has done for my soul.
             17 I cried to him with my mouth.
          He was extolled with my tongue.
             18 If I cherished sin in my heart,
          the Lord wouldn’t have listened.
             19 But most certainly, God has listened.
          He has heard the voice of my prayer.
             20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer,
          nor his loving kindness from me.

Philippians 1:1-30

1 Paul’s Letter to the Philippians
    Paul and Timothy, servants of Jesus Christ;
    To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers[1] and servants[2]: 2 Grace to you, and peace from God, our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God whenever I remember you, 4 always in every request of mine on behalf of you all making my requests with joy, 5 for your partnership[3] in furtherance of the Good News from the first day until now; 6 being confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. 7 It is even right for me to think this way on behalf of all of you, because I have you in my heart, because, both in my bonds and in the defense and confirmation of the Good News, you all are partakers with me of grace. 8 For God is my witness, how I long after all of you in the tender mercies of Christ Jesus.
    9 This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all discernment; 10 so that you may approve the things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense to the day of Christ; 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
    12 Now I desire to have you know, brothers,[4] that the things which happened to me have turned out rather to the progress of the Good News; 13 so that it became evident to the whole palace[5] guard, and to all the rest, that my bonds are in Christ; 14 and that most of the brothers in the Lord, being confident through my bonds, are more abundantly bold to speak the word of God without fear. 15 Some indeed preach Christ even out of envy and strife, and some also out of good will. 16 The former insincerely preach Christ from selfish ambition, thinking that they add affliction to my chains; 17 but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the Good News.
    18 What does it matter? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed. I rejoice in this, yes, and will rejoice. 19 For I know that this will turn out to my salvation, through your supplication and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will in no way be disappointed, but with all boldness, as always, now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life, or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will bring fruit from my work; yet I don’t know what I will choose. 23 But I am in a dilemma between the two, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. 24 Yet, to remain in the flesh is more needful for your sake. 25 Having this confidence, I know that I will remain, yes, and remain with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, 26 that your rejoicing may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my presence with you again.
    27 Only let your way of life be worthy of the Good News of Christ, that, whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your state, that you stand firm in one spirit, with one soul striving for the faith of the Good News; 28 and in nothing frightened by the adversaries, which is for them a proof of destruction, but to you of salvation, and that from God. 29 Because it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in him, but also to suffer on his behalf, 30 having the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear is in me.

Psalms 50:14

14 Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving.
          Pay your vows to the Most High.

Psalms 103:1-5

1 {
By David.
             Praise Yahweh, my soul!
          All that is within me, praise his holy name!
             2 Praise Yahweh, my soul,
          and don’t forget all his benefits;
             3 who forgives all your sins;
          who heals all your diseases;
             4 who redeems your life from destruction;
          who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies;
             5 who satisfies your desire with good things,
          so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalms 92:1

             Give thanks to Yahweh! Call on his name!
          Make his doings known among the peoples.

1 Corinthians 4:7-9

7 For who makes you different? And what do you have that you didn’t receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it? 8 You are already filled. You have already become rich. You have come to reign without us. Yes, and I wish that you did reign, that we also might reign with you. 9 For, I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last of all, like men sentenced to death. For we are made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and men.

             3 Let the house of Aaron now say
          that his loving kindness endures forever.
             4 Now let those who fear Yahweh say
          that his loving kindness endures forever.
             5 Out of my distress, I called on Yah.
          Yah answered me with freedom.
             6 Yahweh is on my side. I will not be afraid.
          What can man do to me?
             7 Yahweh is on my side among those who help me.
          Therefore I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
             8 It is better to take refuge in Yahweh,
          than to put confidence in man.
             9 It is better to take refuge in Yahweh,
          than to put confidence in princes.
             10 All the nations surrounded me,
          but in the name of Yahweh, I cut them off.
             11 They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me.
          In the name of Yahweh I indeed cut them off.
             12 They surrounded me like bees.
          They are quenched like the burning thorns.
          In the name of Yahweh I cut them off.
             13 You pushed me back hard, to make me fall,
          but Yahweh helped me.
             14 Yah is my strength and song.
          He has become my salvation.
             15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous.
          “The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly.
             16 The right hand of Yahweh is exalted!
          The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly!”
             17 I will not die, but live,
          and declare Yah’s works.
             18 Yah has punished me severely,
          but he has not given me over to death.

Luke 17:11-19

11 It happened as he was on his way to Jerusalem, that he was passing along the borders of Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he entered into a certain village, ten men who were lepers met him, who stood at a distance. 13 They lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
    14 When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” It happened that as they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice. 16 He fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks; and he was a Samaritan. 17 Jesus answered, “Weren’t the ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there none found who returned to give glory to God, except this stranger?” 19 Then he said to him, “Get up, and go your way. Your faith has healed you.”
