Old Testament Lesson

We see in Joshua God make provision for every tribe. From the greatest to the least, no one is forgot. God remembers and gives each one what they need. He takes care of them all. As He does for us. Our Lord taught us to pray — give us this day our daily bread. He will give us what we need. We have to trust, even in times of fear, but He will give us what we need.

Today, let us trust in His provision.

New Testament Lesson

Paul teaches us to day to treat everyone with respect. Husbands and wives, children and parents, no matter where we rank, no matter what our status may be, no matter if we are in the corner office or if we aren't even allowed in the building, it doesn't matter. We are all equal in God's eyes, and we are all called to treat each other with respect. Treat each other as the child of God that we are. We are each made in God's image, and we are called to treat each other like it.

Gospel Lesson

Jesus says that the one that has been forgiven much loves much. Today, we have each been forgiven much. We have each been forgiven of things that we could not possible earn forgiveness. We have each been shown grace upon grace, mercy upon mercy. As we have been forgiven much, we are called to love much.

Today, let us remember how much God has forgiven. And let us love God and each other with thankful hearts.
