- Dec 22, 2013passage: 1Tim 5:1-5:10
Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men
as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with
all purity. Honour widows that are widows indeed. But if any widow
have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home,
and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before
God. Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God,
and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. But she
that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. And these things
give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any provide not
for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied
the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Let not a widow be taken into
the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man.
Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she
have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have
relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.
passage: Mark 8:11-8:21
And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking
of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And he sighed deeply in his
spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I
say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. And he
left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the
ship with them more than one loaf. And he charged them, saying, Take
heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have
no bread. And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye,
because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have
ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears,
hear ye not? and do ye not remember? When I brake the five loaves among
five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say
unto him, Twelve. And when the seven among four thousand, how many
baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. And he
said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
