Daily Readings for Friday May 05,2017

Reading 3, Rom 15: 1-6 : Please others, not yourselves.

 

1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves;
2 let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to edify him.
3 For Christ did not please himself; but, as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached thee fell on me."
4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.
5 May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,
6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Gospel, Lk 6: 6-11 : Do good in Sabbath.

 

6 On another sabbath, when he entered the synagogue and taught, a man was there whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the sabbath, so that they might find an accusation against him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Come and stand here." And he rose and stood there.
9 And Jesus said to them, "I ask you, is it lawful on the sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it?"
10 And he looked around on them all, and said to him, "Stretch out your hand." And he did so, and his hand was restored.
11 But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.
