Daily Readings for Today

First: Revelation 11:4-12
Resp: Psalm 144:1-2,9-10
Gospel: Luke 20:27-40




Revelation is one of those books I never can understand. But, maybe that is a self-fulfilling prophecy? Let's see... they are talking about the items in front of God and warnings about messing with those items. Two prophet's torment the people of the earth. God revives them after their death and they are ascended into heaven.

Psalm is easier to understand. The are songs and prayers to God. Blessings to God, and a description of the things God does for us, and our response of praise in God.

The Gospel story is the one of the seven brothers and their widow, all who die childless. The Sadducees do not believe in resurrection but are asking about resurrection. Are they trying to trap Jesus or are they really curious? The last words implies that they were trying to trap him. But, they believed he answered them well ... perhaps some were saved through his conversation with them? One can only hope.

Anyways, what are your thoughts? I really am curious.
