      passage: 1Peter 4:12-5:5

      Chapter 4

      Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to
      try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice,
      inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his
      glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye
      be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of
      glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of,
      but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a
      murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other
      men's matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be
      ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come
      that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin
      at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
      And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and
      the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the
      will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing,
      as unto a faithful Creator.

      Chapter 5

      The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and
      a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the
      glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among
      you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly;
      not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over
      God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief
      Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth
      not away. Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea,
      all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility:
      for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

      passage: Mark 12:38-12:44

      Chapter 12

      And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love
      to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces, And
      the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
      Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers:
      these shall receive greater damnation. And Jesus sat over against the
      treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and
      many that were rich cast in much. And there came a certain poor widow,
      and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto
      him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That
      this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into
      the treasury: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of
      her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
