    Titus 2:1-8, 11-14
    1 But as for you, teach what befits sound doctrine.
    2 Bid the older men be temperate, serious, sensible, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.
    3 Bid the older women likewise to be reverent in behavior, not to be slanderers or slaves to drink; they are to teach what is good,
    4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
    5 to be sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to their husbands, that the word of God may not be discredited.
    6 Likewise urge the younger men to control themselves.
    7 Show yourself in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity,
    8 and sound speech that cannot be censured, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us.
    11 For the grace of God has appeared for the salvation of all men,
    12 training us to renounce irreligion and worldly passions, and to live sober, upright, and godly lives in this world,
    13 awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
    14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all iniquity and to purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds.

    Psalms 37:3-4, 18, 23, 27, 29

    4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
    18 The LORD knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will abide for ever;
    23 The steps of a man are from the LORD, and he establishes him in whose way he delights;
    27 Depart from evil, and do good; so shall you abide for ever.
    29 The righteous shall possess the land, and dwell upon it for ever.

  • Gospel

    Luke 17:7-10
    7 "Will any one of you, who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep, say to him when he has come in from the field, `Come at once and sit down at table'?
    8 Will he not rather say to him, `Prepare supper for me, and gird yourself and serve me, till I eat and drink; and afterward you shall eat and drink'?
    9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded?
    10 So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say, `We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'"

    8 He will reveal instruction in his teaching, and will glory in the law of the Lord's covenant.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 16:13-19
    13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesare'a Philip'pi, he asked his disciples, "Who do men say that the Son of man is?"
    14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Eli'jah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
    15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
    16 Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
    17 And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
    18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.
    19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
