Praising God Always

Proper 25, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture:Job 42:1-6, 10-17

Sometimes Job felt let down by God, but he always returned to praise. Now, as we are coming near to the end of the long green season, we also come to the end of Job’s trials. Job has two choices in front of him: to curse God for all of the pain in his life or to praise God for staying with him through his trials and seeing him safely to the other side.

Blindness and Faith

Season after Pentecost, Proper 25, Year B
Scripture: Mark 10:46-52

No ceremony, no pomposity, no swooping in with fuss and feathers. No needs assessments, no programs. Jesus simply stands before the pleading blind man and asks: “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus can see that this man has gathered all his courage to ask: “My sight.” Jesus affirms the man’s courage and assures him his faith will make him well.
