Today’s Scriptures

But grace was given to each of us

according to the measure of Christ’s gift. 

EPH 4:7

R. Their message goes out through all the earth.

The heavens declare the glory of God;

and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.

Day pours out the word to day,

and night to night imparts knowledge.

PS 19:2-3, 5

“Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.

Go and learn the meaning of the words,

I desire mercy, not sacrifice.

I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”

MT 9:13
