27th Week After Pentecost v Monday 

  1Tim 5:1-5:10  Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and
the younger men as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as
sisters, with all purity. Honour widows that are widows indeed. But if
any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety
at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable
before God. Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in
God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. But she
that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth   . And these things
give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any provide not for
his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the
faith, and is worse than an infidel   



  . Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old,
having been the wife of one man. Well reported of for good works; if she
have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have
washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have
diligently followed every good work.

  Luke 17:20-17:25  And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the
kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of
God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo
there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you     


  . And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall
desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see
it. And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after
them, nor follow them. For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the
one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so
shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many
things, and be rejected of this generation.
