Eighth Sunday after Pentecost
Watchword for the Week — God, turn to me and be gracious to me, as is your custom toward those who love your name. Psalm 119:132
Sunday, July 30 — 1 Kings 3:5–12; Psalm 119:129–136
Romans 8:26–39; Matthew 13:31–33,44–52
Do not trust in these deceptive words: “This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.” Amend your ways and your doings. Jeremiah 7:4–5
Paul wrote: The Kingdom of God is not a matter of words but of power. 1 Corinthians 4:20 (GNT)
Wonderful Creator of Almighty Power, we gaze into the universe and are left speechless with the magnitude of your glories. All is your living temple. We humbly remove sandals to walk graciously upon your sacred ground. Amen.
