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.

Sirach 5-7

Remember, and act as if you remember, that God has helped you and will continue to help you.

Stand up for what you know to be right, but be quicker to listen than to speak.

Distinguish between faithful friends and temporary ones.

The search for wisdom may have difficulties but it's worth it.

Do not be evil.
Don't stop praying or giving alms.
Don't lie.
Don't be lazy.
Don't mistreat anyone.
Don't avoid those who mourn or those who are sick.
