Lectionary Haiku 23 Feb 2022

An earlier media debate today contested secular vs religious influences on the degree to which individual rights have risen against the common good. Our set texts may offer some nuance. The Psalm continues its remorse. We peek into the strict rules of maintaining holy order within a dedicated tribal society, with some surprising concessions. Jesus helps us to own both our stumbles and our responsibilities to one another

Psalm 38

Remorse is lament
but not, in fact, change of heart –
Wait on God to start!

Leviticus 5:1-13

To disrupt good order
A penalty must be paid
Not more than is fair

Luke 17:1-4

Likely to offend
We will weigh each other down
Lest forgiveness reigns

  1. What do you think about putting the verses in as well? I was just gonna go to my bible and I thought others might do the same. I liked these. Some of words I don’t understand and instead of looking up the word (I will if there’s just one word) I remain blissful in my ignorance of thinking I’m smarter than I am. 😀

  2. Thanks for your valued comment. If you click on the Bible reference the link will take you to the text. I had considered reproducing the text directly, but this method avoids copyright issues. Maybe I’ll add this as a footnote in future. Yes, some words from the high end of town creep in. 😉 I also like to sometimes pretend I am smarter than I am! 😀 This process is an experiment, so thanks again for your feedback.
