Psalm: 56

Meditation

James: Luther did not like this book and was in favor of removing it from Scripture. By his time the canon of Scripture had been settled for over a thousand years except for what are called the deuterocanonical (apocryphal) books. Verse 22 may be yet another thorn in Luther’s side. Think of James as a sort of Christian handbook on how to face life. It is full of sound wisdom and even common sense. Do not be side-tracked by personal theology. Scripture is quirky; sometimes it just says “maybe”. 

Gospel: 

Luke 16:1-9

New Testament:

James 1:16-27

Old Testament:

Joel 2:28—3:8
