    Galatians 5:18-25

    18But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law. 19Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, 21envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness, self-control;against such there is no law. 24And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.


    Psalms 1:1-4, 6

    1Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;2but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3He is like a tree planted by streams of water, that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. 4The wicked are not so, but are like chaff which the wind drives away. 6for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.


    Luke 11:42-46

    42"But woe to you Pharisees! for you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of God;these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 43Woe to you Pharisees! for you love the best seat in the synagogues and salutations in the market places. 44Woe to you! for you are like graves which are not seen, and men walk over them without knowing it." 45One of the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, in saying this you reproach us also." 46And he said, "Woe to you lawyers also! for you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.

    Rom 4:1-8

    Brothers and sisters:
    What can we say that Abraham found,
    our ancestor according to the flesh?
    Indeed, if Abraham was justified on the basis of his works,
    he has reason to boast;
    but this was not so in the sight of God.
    For what does the Scripture say?
    Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.
    A worker’s wage is credited not as a gift, but as something due.
    But when one does not work,
    yet believes in the one who justifies the ungodly,
    his faith is credited as righteousness.
    So also David declares the blessedness of the person
    to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:

    Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven
    and whose sins are covered.
    Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord does not record.


    PS 32:1b-2, 5, 11

    R. (see 7) I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Blessed is he whose fault is taken away,
    whose sin is covered.
    Blessed the man to whom the LORD imputes not guilt,
    in whose spirit there is no guile.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Then I acknowledged my sin to you,
    my guilt I covered not.
    I said, “I confess my faults to the LORD,”
    and you took away the guilt of my sin.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.
    Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you just;
    exult, all you upright of heart.
    R. I turn to you, Lord, in time of trouble, and you fill me with the joy of salvation.

    Alleluia PS 33:22

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    May your kindness, O LORD, be upon us;
    who have put our hope in you.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.


    Lk 12:1-7

    At that time:
    So many people were crowding together
    that they were trampling one another underfoot.
    Jesus began to speak, first to his disciples,
    "Beware of the leaven--that is, the hypocrisy--of the Pharisees.

    "There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed,
    nor secret that will not be known.
    Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness
    will be heard in the light,
    and what you have whispered behind closed doors
    will be proclaimed on the housetops.
    I tell you, my friends,
    do not be afraid of those who kill the body
    but after that can do no more.
    I shall show you whom to fear.
    Be afraid of the one who after killing
    has the power to cast into Gehenna;
    yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one.
    Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins?
    Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.
    Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.
    Do not be afraid.
    You are worth more than many sparrows."
