First Reading
Matthew 7:1-6
1  Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
2  For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3  Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
4  How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?
5  You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
6  Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Romans 14:1-13
1  Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.
2  One man's faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables.
3  The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him.
4  Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.
5  One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.
6  He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.
7  For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone.
8  If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
9  For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.
10  You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat.
11  It is written: " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' "
12  So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
13  Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother's way.

Sermon

Offering
"What Do I Know Of Holy"

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to The First Article of The Apostles' Creed
I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that he has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.  He also gives me clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, animals, and all I have.  He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life.  He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.  All this he does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me.  For all this it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey him.  This is most certainly true.

Prayers Of The Day

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
