Scripture Reading #1 : 2 Thessalonians 1:1-4, 11-12
Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the
Lord Jesus Christ. We must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and
sisters, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of
everyone of you for one another is increasing. Therefore we ourselves boast of you
among the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith during all your
persecutions and the afflictions that you are enduring. To this end we always pray
for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfill by his
power every good resolve and work of faith, so that the name of our Lord Jesus
may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the
Lord Jesus Christ.

Scripture Reading #2 : Luke 19:1-10
He entered Jericho and was passing through it. A man was there named Zacchaeus;
he was a chief tax collector and was rich. He was trying to see who Jesus was, but
on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. So he ran
ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that
way. When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus,
hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today." So he hurried down
and was happy to welcome him. All who saw it began to grumble and said, "He
has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner." Zacchaeus stood there and said to
the Lord, "Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have
defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much." Then Jesus
said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of
Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost."
