It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Reflection on the One-Year-Bible readings for December 10

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
(Psalm 130:1)

Amos 1:1-3:15
During the time Uzziah was king of Judah and Jeroboam II of Israel, Amos, a shepherd from the subservient Judah speaks of the upcoming judgment, delayed but inevitable, against Israel's enemies, against Judah, and against Israel.

Revelation 2:1-17

Psalm 129:1-8
O God, please take care of my enemies, and I don't mean in a nice way.

Proverbs 29:19-20
Do you see someone who is hasty in speech?
There is more hope for a fool than for someone like that.

Prayer for Today: As we read through the One-Year Bible, we also recognize that we are in the season of Advent. Today, and other days, choose a prayer from the Advent Prayers on the Alive Now page.
