Scripture: Luke 22:25-35
This is the second Sunday of Advent.
“I love the melodies in the Old Testament, how preachers highlight them when they read from the Scripture. But I was influenced forever by the New Testament. I love the Beatitudes, informing us that the meek shall inherit the earth.”—Maya Angelou
“He never complained. He seemed to have no instinct for the making much of oneself that complaining requires.”―Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow
"There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse… And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear, but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth."—Isaiah 11:1-4
