Readings for Sunday, October 11, 2020

Exodus 32:1-14; Psalm 106:1-6, 19-23; Philippians 4:1-9; Matthew 22:1-14

Faithful Living:

8Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”                                                                                               Philippians 4:8

It may be difficult for Christians of our day to realize just who made up many of these early congregations to which Paul wrote his letters. As it had been with Jesus in many instances, it was the moral outcasts like prostitutes and the ethically corrupt like tax collectors who were attracted to the Christian way. Paul’s ministry in Philippi had begun with two people, neither of whom would have been among the prestigious citizens of that Roman city: a woman of commerce, and the town jailer (Acts 16:14-15, 25-40). In the households of both of these who were baptized would have been many slaves too. Whatever their former life had been like, Paul expected everyone to embody the joy evoked in faithful living.
