Bible Readings for this week

July 07th—Bible Readings

Psalm 123— A song of ascents.

1. I lift up my eyes to you, to you who sit enthroned in heaven. 2. As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress,so our eyes look to the Lord our God, till he shows us his mercy.

3. Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us, for we have endured no end of contempt. 4. We have endured no end of ridicule from the arrogant, of contempt from the proud.

2 Corinthians 12:2-10— I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Mark 6:1-13— A Prophet Without Honor

1. Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. 2. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? 3. Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph,[a] Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. 4.Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” 5. He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6. He was amazed at their lack of faith.
