Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Watchword for the week — There is great gain in godliness combined with contentment. 1 Timothy 6:6

Sunday, September 29 — Amos 6:1a,4-7; Psalm 146 1
Timothy 6:6-19; Luke 16:19-31

A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. Psalm 33:16

When Herod died, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who were seeking the child’s life are dead.” Matthew 2:19-20

Lord, we know that we are not saved by our own strength, but by holding fast to your love and leaning on your strength. What joy to know that, just as you delivered our savior from Herod, you will deliver us from our fears. Amen.
