The scriptures read are Habakkuk 2, Psalm 128 and Mark 6.
Habakkuk 2. The answer from God comes: Wait, judgment will come to the wicked--the greedy, those whose wealth comes from theft and extortion, the violent, those who indulge in drunkenness, orgies and idolatry and whose collateral damage includes the destruction of animals!
By contrast, the righteous live by faithfulness. In other words, trust God; the wicked (including in this case, the Babylonians) will get their comeuppance at the right time.
Psalm 128. A simple and sweet version of this psalm.
Mark 6. For my reflections on this chapter, click here.
