12“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." [John 5:12, source Holy Bible and on-line daily lectionary readings at]

For this week from the daily lectionary:

Psalm 23

1   The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;      he leads me beside still waters; 3  He restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.

4   Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff — they comfort me.

5   You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6   Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD my whole life long.

 Matthew 15:29-31

29After Jesus had left that place, he passed along the Sea of Galilee, and he went up the mountain, where he sat down. 30Great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the mute, and many others. They put them at his feet, and he cured them, 31so that the crowd was amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing.

And they praised the God of Israel.
