Lectionary Summaries


Luke 19:31: “If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’”
Consider the faithfulness of that man who owned the donkey and colt. All he needed to hear was, “The Lord has need of it” - and he willingly gave. The Lord has given each of us various callings in life (in our homes, in the Church, and in the communities we live in). In each calling we have good work to do which comes from the Lord's hand. The Lord has need of us in each calling. How is He calling you to generous giving in each of your vocations?

Life Message

“After you have thought about your earthly blessings, take some time and meditate on your spiritual blessings from the Lord. Think of your baptism where the Lord adopted you into His family and gave you forgiveness of your sins, life, and salvation.” James Schroeder, LCMS Foundation – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life –
