Thoughts on today's readings-
Old testament text
1. 30 peices of silver for a slave gored by a bull. Isn't 30 pieces of silver what Judas was paid for his betrayal of Christ? Hmmm...the price of a slave.
2. Don't favor the poor because they are poor
3. Keep the Sabbath...rest.
New Testament text
4. Coming of the Messiah and false prophets...This phrase alone makes you wonder how people get caught up in cults that isolate themselves. Like David Koresh and Jim Jones. The scripture clearly says..."as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man comes." Jesus also warns that even "the chosen" will be deceived! So, reader beware.
5." The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace."
6. How often do we go willingly to our doom?
