Proper 22


THE WORD OF GOD

 

The First Lesson - Habakkuk 1:1-4, 2:1-4

The oracle that the prophet Habakkuk saw. O Lord, how long shall I cry for  help, and you will not listen? Or cry to you "Violence!" and you will not save? Why do you make me see wrong-doing and look at trouble? Destruction and  violence are before me; strife and contention arise. So the law becomes slack and justice never prevails. The wicked surround the righteous-- therefore judgment comes forth perverted. I will stand at my watchpost, and station myself on the rampart; I will keep watch to see what he will say to me, and what he will answer concerning my complaint. Then the Lord answered me and said:  Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it. For there is still a vision for the appointed time; it speaks of the end, and does not lie. If it seems to tarry, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay. Look at the proud! Their spirit is not right in them, but the righteous live by their faith.

Psalm 37:1-10

Noli aemulari
1 Do not fret yourself because of evildoers; *
do not be jealous of those who do wrong.


2 For they shall soon wither like the grass, *
and like the green grass fade away.


3 Put your trust in the Lord and do good; *
dwell in the land and feed on its riches.


4 Take delight in the Lord, *
and he shall give you your heart's desire.


5 Commit your way to the Lord and put your trust in him, *
and he will bring it to pass.


6 He will make your righteousness as clear as the light *
and your just dealing as the noonday.


7 Be still before the Lord *
and wait patiently for him.


8 Do not fret yourself over the one who prospers, *
the one who succeeds in evil schemes.


9 Refrain from anger, leave rage alone; *
do not fret yourself; it leads only to evil.


10 For evildoers shall be cut off, *
but those who wait upon the Lord shall possess the land.

The Epistle - 2 Timothy 1:1-14

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, for the sake of the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus, 

To Timothy, my beloved child:  Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I am grateful to God-- whom I worship with a clear conscience, as my ancestors did-- when I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. Recalling your tears, I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you. For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.

Do not be ashamed, then, of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel, relying on the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace. This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. For this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher, and for this reason I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that day what I have entrusted to him. Hold to the standard of sound teaching that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Guard the good treasure entrusted to you, with the help of the Holy Spirit living in us.

 


The Gospel According to Luke

The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" The Lord replied, "If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, `Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.

"Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, `Come here at once and take your place at the table'? Would you not rather say to him, `Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink'? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, `We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!'"
Luke 17:5-10

Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Then Jesus asked, "Were not ten made clean?
But the other nine, where are they? Luke 17:17


Only 1 showed gratitude. Before we look askance at the 9 who didn’t, perhaps we should review all the elements of our own lives. Do we thank God for the entirety of what we have, or only for the obvious
10%?
