passage: Col 3:17-4:1
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Wives,
submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. Children,
obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not
with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:
for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive
for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing
that ye also have a Master in heaven.
passage: Luke 9:44-9:50
Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be
delivered into the hands of men. But they understood not this saying,
and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared
to ask him of that saying. Then there arose a reasoning among them,
which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought
of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, And said unto them,
Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever
shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among
you all, the same shall be great. And John answered and said, Master,
we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because
he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not:
for he that is not against us is for us.
