“27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.” (Proverbs 15:27 KJV)
“9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.” (Proverbs 18:9 KJV)
“25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the Lord shall be made fat.” (Proverbs 28:25 KJV)
“14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.” (Proverbs 26:14 KJV)
“22 He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.” (Proverbs 28:22 KJV)
“30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; 31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. 32 Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction. 33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 34 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.” (Proverbs 24:30-34 KJV)
“8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. 10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. 11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: 12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: 13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: 14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: 15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: 16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. 17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. 18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. 19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.” (Proverbs 1:8-19 KJV)
- Third Sunday in Lent, Communion Sunday
- I think all the proverbs were read as a single reading. I don’t remember anything.
- Maybe I just went with the flow of things, acting the part.
