Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany
Watchword for the Week — For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. 1 Corinthians 13:12
Sunday, January 31 — Jeremiah 1:4–10; Psalm 71:1–6
1 Corinthians 13:1–13; Luke 4:21–30
From the least to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for unjust gain; and from prophet to priest, everyone deals falsely. They have treated the wound of my people carelessly, saying, “Peace, peace,” when there is no peace. Jeremiah 6:13–14
Paul wrote: I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved. 1 Corinthians 10:33 (NIV)
Generous Lord, infuse our spirits with your love and compassion that we might see the broken spirits of others and respond as you have shown us. Where there is need, help us to meet it with your kindness. May all that is good be seen in us, your children. Amen.
