Seventh Sunday of Epiphany 2017 – Leviticus 19:17-18

Thursday, February 16, 2017 

Leviticus 19:17-18You shall not hate in your heart anyone of your kin; you shall reprove your neighbor, or you will incur guilt yourself.  You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.

“Love your neighbor as yourself,” is surely one of the most recognized passages in scripture.  The Golden Rule, or the ethic of reciprocity as it is also called, is found in some form in nearly every world religion.  This provides us with a common reference point for all people of faith.

Almighty God, help us better recognize our neighbors and treat them as we would like to be treated.  Amen.

Seventh Sunday of Epiphany 2017 – Leviticus 19:13-14

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 

Leviticus 19:13-14: You shall not defraud your neighbor; you shall not steal; and you shall not keep for yourself the wages of a laborer until morning.  You shall not revile the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind; you shall fear your God: I am the LORD.

Be honest with others, and don’t scorn or hinder them.  These verses remind us to deal with our neighbors fairly and in ways which are helpful to them.

Understanding God, help us treat our neighbors in ways which reflect our faith in you.  Amen.

Seventh Sunday of Epiphany 2017 – Leviticus 19:9-10

Monday, February 13, 2017

We explore caring for one another in the passages for the seventh Sunday of Epiphany.  Our passages include: Leviticus 19:1-2, 9-18; Psalm 119:33-40; 1 Corinthians 3:10-11, 16-23 and Matthew 5:38-48.

Leviticus 19:9-10When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest.  You shall not strip your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the alien: I am the LORD your God.

We are instructed to consider the needs of those less fortunate than we are.  We are further told that what “the poor and the alien” are to get from us is not simply that which misses our harvest buckets but some of the first fruits of our labor.

Gracious God, bless our work offered to others this day.  May all our efforts be our best efforts.  Amen.
