Psalm 23

1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil;
for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Luke 9:51-62

51 And it came to pass, when the time had come that He should be received up, He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and He sent messengers before His face. And they went and entered into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set as though He would go to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said,"Lord, wilt Thou that we command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, even as Elijah did?" 55 But He turned and rebuked them and said,

"Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56 For the Son of Man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."

And they went to another village. 57 And it came to pass that, as they went along the way, a certain man said unto Him, "Lord, I will follow Thee whithersoever Thou goest." 58 And Jesus said unto him,

"Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man hath nowhere to lay His head."

59 And He said unto another,

"Follow Me."

But he said, "Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father." 60 Jesus said unto him,

"Let the dead bury their dead, but go thou and preach the Kingdom of God."

61 And another also said, "Lord, I will follow Thee, but let me first go bid those farewell who are at home at my house." 62 And Jesus said unto him,

"No man, having put his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God."

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so will God bring with Him those also who sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord: that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; 17 then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Isaiah 3:1-12

1 For behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff,
the whole store of bread and the whole store of water,
2 the mighty man and the man of war,
the judge and the prophet, and the prudent and the ancient,
3 the captain of fifty and the honorable man,
and the counselor and the skilled artificer and the eloquent orator.

4 "And I will give children to be their princes,
and babes shall rule over them.
5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another and every one by his neighbor;
the child shall behave himself proudly against the elder, and the base against the honorable."

6 When a man shall take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying,
"Thou hast clothing; be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand,"
7 in that day he shall swear, saying, "I will not be a healer, for in my house is neither bread nor clothing:
Make me not a ruler of the people!"

8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen,
because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of His glory.
9 The show of their countenance doth witness against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they hide it not.
Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

10 Say ye to the righteous that it shall be well with them,
for they shall eat the fruits of their doings.
11 Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him,
for the reward of his hands shall be given him.
12 As for My people, children are their oppressors,
and women rule over them!
O My people, they that lead thee cause thee to err,
and destroy the way of thy paths.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 21:21

He that followeth after righteousness and mercy 
findeth life, righteousness and honor.
