Psalm 32

1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no guile.

3 When I kept silent, my bones waxed old through my groaning all the day long.
4 For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon me; the sap of my soul was turned into the drought of summer.
5 I acknowledged my sin unto Thee,
and mine iniquity have I not hid.
I said, "I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD,"
and Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.

6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found;
surely the floods of great waters shall not come nigh unto him.
7 Thou art my hiding place;
Thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.

8 "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go;
I will guide thee with Mine eye.
9 Be ye not as the horse or as the mule which have no understanding,
whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle,
lest they not come near unto thee."

10 Many shall be the sorrows of the wicked;
but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
11 Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, ye righteous;
and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart!

Luke 12:13-21

13 And one of the company said unto Him, "Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me." 14 And He said unto him,

"Man, who made Me a judge or a divider over you?"

15 And He said unto them,

"Take heed and beware of covetousness, for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth."

16 And He spoke a parable unto them, saying,

"The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully. 17 And he thought within himself, saying, `What shall I do, because I have no room to store my fruits?' 18 And he said, `This will I do. I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there will I store all my fruits and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years. Take thine ease; eat, drink, and be merry.' 20 But God said unto him, `Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee. Then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?' 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God."

1 Timothy 2

1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, 7 for which I am ordained a preacher and an apostle (I speak the truth in Christ and lie not), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. 

8 It is my will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting. 9 In like manner also, that women should adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobermindedness, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly array, 10 but, as becometh women professing godliness, with good works. 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived; but the woman, being deceived, was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding, she shall be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobermindedness.

Isaiah 11:1-10

1 And there shall come forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse,
and a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
2 And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him--
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD"
3 and shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD;
and He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears.
4 But with righteousness shall He judge the poor,
and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth;
and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth,
and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins,
and faithfulness the girdle of His reins.

6 "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together;
and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp,
and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain;
for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

10 "And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand for an ensign of the people;
to It shall the Gentiles seek, and His rest shall be glorious."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 29:10

Lose thy money for thy brother and thy friend, 
and let it not rust under a stone to be lost.
