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 8

Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord guards the city, 
the guard keeps watch in vain.
(Psalm 127:1)

Hosea 10:1-14:9
The terrible consequences of getting what you deserve. A plea for a chance to start over.

Jude 1:1-25
Not everyone who claims to know what God wants does.

Psalm 127:1-5
Advice for those who really are working too hard.

Proverbs 29:15-17
When the wicked are in authority, 
    transgression increases,
but the righteous look down 
    upon their downfall.

Prayer for Today: Pray Hosea 14:2
