- Luke 8:26-56
- Genesis 14:1-24
- Psalms 7:1-17
I will take nothing for myself. I will accept only what my men have used. But let my allies, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre, take their shame. Genesis 14:24
I thank the Lord for his justice; I sing praises to the Lord, the most high. Psalms 7:17
“Go back home and tell what God has done for you.”
The man went through the town, telling what Jesus had done for him. Luke 8:39
It’s nice to have had the stories from Luke in this reading. Jesus’ healing of Jarius’ daughter is one of the greater miracles, and it’s accompanied by so many other miracles in the same section of the text! And still both Genesis and Psalms are those of revenge and holy fire. I hope that at least the Psalms will change their tone to one of love, soon.
