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 11

Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive 
to the voice of my supplications!
(Psalm 130:2)

Amos 4:1-6:14
Israel is accused by the Lord of oppressing the poor, crushing the needy. God tried to get their attention, but nothing seemed to distract them. The Lord laments over the future of Israel and entreats them to change their ways, that showing up for fancy worship services won't suffice.

The Lord says to them, "Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an everflowing stream."

Revelation 2:18-3:6

Psalm 130:1-8
We can look to the Lord for support and forgiveness, for love and redemption.

Proverbs 29:21-22
One given to anger stirs up strife, 
and the hothead causes much transgression.

Prayer for Today: Pray Psalm 130.
