The Book of Proverbs   3: 27-34

3:28 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.
Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—
when you already have it with you.

3:29 Do not plot harm against your neighbor,   who lives trustfully near you.

3:30Do not accuse anyone for no reason-when they have done you no harm.

3:31Do not envy the violent or choose any of their ways. 

3:32For the Lord detests the perverse but takes the upright into his confidence.

3:33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.

3:34 He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.


The Holy Gospel According to Luke   8: 16-18

8:16 Now no one, lighting a candle, covers it with a container, or sets it under a bed. Instead, he places it on a lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
8:17 For there is nothing secret, which will not be made clear, nor is there anything hidden, which will not be known and be brought into plain sight.
8:18 Therefore, take care how you listen. For whoever has, it will be given to him; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.”
