First Reading: Psalm 62 (APBA)
1 My soul waits in silence for God:
for from him comes my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation:
my strong tower, so that I shall never be moved.
3 How long will you all plot against me to destroy me:
as though I were a leaning fence or a buckling wall?
4 Their design is to thrust me from my height,
and their delight is in lies:
they bless with their lips, but inwardly they curse.
5 Nevertheless, my soul, wait in silence for God:
for from him comes my hope.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation:
my strong tower, so that I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my deliverance and my glory:
God is my strong rock and my shelter.
8 Trust in him at all times, O my people:
pour out your hearts before him, for God is our refuge.
9 The children of Adam are but breath,
the children of earth are a lie:
place them in the scales and they fly upward,
they are as light as air.
10 Put no trust in extortion,
do not grow worthless by robbery:
if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God has spoken once, twice have I heard him say:
that power belongs to God,
12 That to the Lord belongs a constant goodness:
for you reward each one of us according to our works.
Hear the word of the Lord
Thanks be to God
Second Reading is from Mark 1:14-20
14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the
good news of God, 15 and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom
of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.’
16 As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his
brother Andrew casting a net into the lake—for they were
fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish
for people.’ 18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19 As
he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother
John, who were in their boat mending the nets. 20 Immediately he called
them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men,
and followed him.
