Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Watchword for the week — I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you. Hebrews 2:12
Sunday, October 3 — Genesis 2:18-24; Psalm 8
Hebrews 1:1-4;2:5-12; Mark 10:2-16
The Lord said, “You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight. Should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city?” Jonah 4:10-11 NASB
The Lord is compassionate and merciful. James 5:11
Lord, though we are the recipients of your “compassion and mercy,” our opinions about Ninevites/others often disregard your view of them. Stir us and teach us to see with your heart of compassion and mercy. Amen.
