1 Kings 17:10-16. A widow, ready to die, shares the little she has with the prophet and is rewarded with food to sustain her through a drought.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (145) 146
This is the first of the five psalms that provide a solemn doxology to the Book of Psalms, a collection known as the “Great Hallel.” The psalm is really in two parts: praise of God the creator (vv. 1-6a) and praise of God the redeemer of the oppressed and helpless (vv. 6b-10). In light of the other Scripture passages used this day, the selected verses are from the second half of this psalm.

Hebrews 9:24-28. The author continues to use the analogy of the Jerusalem Temple and the high priesthood to show how Christ’s ministry surpasses anything existing before it.

Mark 12:38-44. Mark contrasts Jesus’ condemnation of those who practice religion for show with the widow who offers God all she has.
