Lectionary Summaries


Luke 5:5 – “And Simon answered, ‘Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.’ ” Peter’s words show both exasperation and trust. He’s tired. He tried his best and failed. But he is still ready to trust the Lord’s word – and act on it. Our stewardship is also a matter of trusting the Lord’s word … and acting on it.

Life Message

[T]here’s more … more to life than sensual pleasures, more to love than the shriveled-up version that has captivated our Western imaginations. So today, ask yourself, ‘How am I responding to so great an expression of love as what God has shown us?’ Valentinus’s response was to give up his own life. For us, too, a kind of ‘death’ is required—a death to self, a death to the desires that our culture treats as ultimate. Now of course, guys, none of this lets you off the hook with your wives. So don’t forget the flowers.” John Stonestreet with Roberto Rivera, ––- A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life
