Colossians 3: 1- 11

3:1Therefore, if you have risen together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
3:2Consider the things that are above, not the things that are upon the earth.
3:3For you have died, and so your life is hidden with Christ in God.
3:4When Christ, your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
3:5Therefore, mortify your body, while it is upon the earth. For because of fornication, impurity, lust, evil desires, and avarice, which are a kind of service to idols,
3:6the wrath of God has overwhelmed the sons of unbelief.
3:7You, too, walked in these things, in times past, when you were living among them.
3:8But now you must set aside all these things: anger, indignation, malice, blasphemy, and indecent speech from your mouth.
3:9Do not lie to one another. Strip yourselves of the old man, with his deeds,
3:10and clothe yourself with the new man, who has been renewed by knowledge, in accord with the image of the One who created him,
3:11where there is neither Gentile nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian nor Scythian, servant nor free. Instead, Christ is everything, in everyone.


Luke 6: 20- 26

6:20And lifting up his eyes to his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
6:21Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who are weeping now, for you shall laugh.
6:22Blessed shall you be when men will have hated you, and when they will have separated you and reproached you, and thrown out your name as if evil, because of the Son of man.
6:23Be glad in that day and exult. For behold, your reward is great in heaven. For these same things their fathers did to the prophets.
6:24Yet truly, woe to you who are wealthy, for you have your consolation.
6:25Woe to you who are satisfied, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.
6:26Woe to you when men will have blessed you. For these same things their fathers did to the false prophets.
