Psalm: 139

Meditation

Joel: In verse 10 we read “Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears…” How times have changed. In Isaiah (2:4) he prophesies just the opposite. Isaiah warns Judah to prepare for peace and prosperity as does Micah (4:3). Joel is telling the (probably of the Northern Kingdom) to prepare for war and for devastation and defeat. Isaiah and Micah use the same imagery for peace and victory whereas Joel uses it for war.

Gospel: Luke 16:10-18

New Testament: James 2:1-13

Old Testament: Joel 3:9-17
