Bible Readings (p.690)

Twentieth Sunday after Trinity—Proper 23

First Reading: Job 23: 1-9,16-17 Job complains bitterly. He desires to come into God’s Presence and put his case before God; But he cannot perceive Him and expresses his desire to vanish in darkness.

Second Reading: Hebrews 4: 12-16 God’s word is like a sword that pierces through us, to expose our inmost thoughts. We must seek the grace that comes through Jesus, our great high priest, to help in time of need.

Third Reading: Mark 10:17-31 Jesus tells a rich man to sell all his possessions and follow him; he then warns of the danger of wealth, in keeping us from the Kingdom of God. But those who have given up much for his sake will receive their reward.
