Reflection on Lessons
In reference to Jeremiah 33:14-16, In the Old Testament, "righteousness" often has to do with being faithful in relationships. God acts righteous both in punishing Israel for its sin and in having mercy. In today's reading, Jerusalem's future name --"The Lord is our righteousness" --proclaims that the Lord even now is working salvation for Israel.

Paul writes about love in Romans, Chapter 12:9-13. "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another beyond yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality."
