Philippians  1: 1-11

1:1 Paul and Timothy, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons.

1:2 Grace and peace to you, from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 I give thanks to my God, with every remembrance of you,

1:4 always, in all my prayers, making supplication for all of you with joy,

1:5 because of your communion in the Gospel of Christ, from the first day even until now.

1:6 I am confident of this very thing: that he who has begun this good work in you will perfect it, unto the day of Christ Jesus.

1:7 So then, it is right for me to feel this way about all of you, because I hold you in my heart, and because, in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the Gospel, you all are partakers of my joy.

1:8 For God is my witness how, within the heart of Jesus Christ, I long for all of you.

1:9 And this I pray: that your charity may abound more and more, with knowledge and with all understanding,

1:10 so that you may be confirmed in what is better, in order that you may be sincere and without offense on the day of Christ:

1:11 filled with the fruit of justice, through Jesus Christ, in the glory and praise of God.


Luke 14: 1-6

14:1 And it happened that, when Jesus entered the house of a certain leader of the Pharisees on the Sabbath to eat bread, they were observing him.

14:2 And behold, a certain man before him was afflicted with edema.

14:3 And responding, Jesus spoke to the experts in the law and to the Pharisees, saying, “Is it lawful to cure on the Sabbath?”

14:4 But they kept silent. Yet truly, taking hold of him, he healed him and sent him away.

14:5 And responding to them, he said, “Which of you will have a donkey or an ox fall into a pit, and will not promptly pull him out, on the day of the Sabbath?”

14:6 And they were unable to respond to him about these things.
