Proper 24 (29) 2016 – Jeremiah 31:34

Monday, October 10, 2016

Lectionary selections for this coming Sunday include Jeremiah 31:27-34; Psalm 119:97-104; 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5 and Luke 18:1-8.  Alternate selections include Genesis 32:22-31 and Psalm 121.

Jeremiah 31:34No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the LORD,” for they shall all know me, from the least to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.

We are working in congregations to reduce the stigma associated with behavioral health issues, including the stigma attached to those among us who are struggling with alcohol or drugs.  As these important conversations continue on how we might help these particular brothers and sisters, we should remember the covenant God makes with the people of Israel in the passage today.

Steadfast and forgiving God, help us see one another as though we are looking through your eyes.  Make us more forgiving people.  Amen.
