أَيُّهَا الجِيلُ المُلْتَوِي غَيرُ المُؤْمِن، إِلى مَتَى أَكُونُ مَعَكُم وَأَحْتَمِلُكُم؟ قَدِّمِ ٱبْنَكَ إِلى هُنَا
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا09/من37حتى45/:”فيمَا يَسُؤعُ وتَلاميذُهُ نَازِلُونَ مِنَ الجَبَل، لاقَاهُ جَمْعٌ كَثِير. وإِذا رَجُلٌ مِنَ الجَمْعِ صَرَخَ قَائِلاً: «يا مُعَلِّم، أَرْجُوك، أُنْظُرْ إِلَى ٱبْنِي، لأَنَّهُ وَحيدٌ لي! وهَا إِنَّ رُوحًا يُمْسِكُ بِهِ فَيَصْرُخُ بَغْتَةً، وَيَهُزُّهُ بِعُنْفٍ فَيُزْبِد، وَبِجَهْدٍ يُفارِقُهُ وهُوَ يُرضِّضُهُ. وقَدْ رَجَوْتُ تَلامِيذَكَ أَنْ يُخْرِجُوهُ، فَلَمْ يَقْدِرُوا!». فَأَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وقَال: «أَيُّهَا الجِيلُ المُلْتَوِي غَيرُ المُؤْمِن، إِلى مَتَى أَكُونُ مَعَكُم وَأَحْتَمِلُكُم؟ قَدِّمِ ٱبْنَكَ إِلى هُنَا». ومَا إِنِ ٱقْتَرَبَ الصَّبِيُّ حَتَّى صَرَعَهُ الشَّيْطَان، وَهَزَّهُ بِعُنْف. فَزَجَرَ يَسُوعُ الرُّوحَ النَّجِس، وأَبْرَأَ الصَّبِيّ، وَسَلَّمَهُ إِلى أَبِيه. فَبُهِتَ الجَمِيعُ مِنْ عَظَمَةِ الله. وفِيمَا كَانُوا جَمِيعًا مُتَعَجِّبِينَ مِنَ كُلِّ مَا كَانَ يَعْمَلُهُ يَسُوع، قالَ لِتَلامِيذِهِ: وَأَنْتُمُ ٱجْعَلُوا هذَا الكَلامَ في مَسَامِعِكُم: فَٱبْنُ الإِنْسَانِ سَوْفَ يُسْلَمُ إِلَى أَيْدِي النَّاس. أَمَّا هُم فَمَا كَانُوا يَفْهَمُونَ هذَا الكَلام، وَقَد أُخْفِيَ عَلَيْهِم لِكَي لا يُدْرِكُوا مَعْنَاه، وَكَانُوا يَخَافُونَ أَنْ يَسْأَلُوهُ عَنْهُ.”

أنَّ مَنْ يَزْرَعُ في الشِّحّ، في الشِّحِّ أَيْضًا يَحْصُد، ومَنْ يَزْرَعُ في البَرَكَات، في البَرَكَاتِ أَيضًا يَحْصُد
وزَّعَ وأَعْطَى المَسَاكِين، فَبِرُّهُ دَائِمٌ إِلى الأَبَد
فَلْيُعْطِ كُلُّ واحِد، كَما نَوَى في قَلْبِهِ، بِلا أَسَفٍ ولا إِكْرَاه، لأَنَّ ٱللهَ يُحِبُّ المُعْطِيَ الفَرْحَان
رسالة القدّيس بولس الثانية إلى أهل قورنتس09/05حتى15/:”يا إخوَتِي، أَمَّا في شَأْنِ خِدمَةِ الإِعَانَاتِ لِلقِدِّيسِين، فقَد رَأَيْتُ مِنَ الضَّرُورِيِّ أَنْ أَطْلُبَ مِنَ الإِخْوَةِ أَنْ يَسْبِقُونِي إِلَيْكُم، فَيُرَتِّبُوا تَقْدِمَاتِ بَرَكَتِكُمُ الَّتي وَعَدْتُم بِهَا، لِتَكُونَ مُهَيَّأَةً لا كَتَقْدِمَةِ بُخْلٍ بَلْ كَبَرَكَة! وٱعْلَمُوا هذَا أَنَّ مَنْ يَزْرَعُ في الشِّحّ، في الشِّحِّ أَيْضًا يَحْصُد، ومَنْ يَزْرَعُ في البَرَكَات، في البَرَكَاتِ أَيضًا يَحْصُد. فَلْيُعْطِ كُلُّ واحِد، كَما نَوَى في قَلْبِهِ، بِلا أَسَفٍ ولا إِكْرَاه، لأَنَّ ٱللهَ يُحِبُّ المُعْطِيَ الفَرْحَان. وٱللهُ قَادِرٌ أَنْ يَغْمُرَكُم بِكُلِّ نِعْمَة، حَتَّى يَكُونَ لَكُم في كُلِّ شَيءٍ وفي كُلِّ حِينٍ كُلُّ مَا يَكْفِيكُم، فَتَفِيضُوا بِكُلِّ عَمَلٍ صَالِح، كَمَا هوَ مَكْتُوب: «وزَّعَ وأَعْطَى المَسَاكِين، فَبِرُّهُ دَائِمٌ إِلى الأَبَد». والَّذي يَرزُقُ الزَّارِعَ زَرْعًا، وخُبْزًا يَقُوتُهُ، هُوَ يَرزُقُكُم ويُكَثِّرُ زَرْعَكُم، ويَزِيدُ ثِمَارَ بِرِّكُم! فَتَغْتَنُونَ في كُلِّ شَيء، لِيَكُونَ سَخَاؤُكُم كَامِلاً ويُثْمِرَ عَلى يَدِنَا فِعْلَ شُكْرٍلله؛ لأَنَّ قِيَامَكُم بِهذِهِ الخِدْمَةِ المُقَدَّسَةِ لا يَسُدُّ عَوَزَ القِدِّيسِينَ فَحَسْب، بَلْ أَيْضًا يُفيضُ فيهِم أَفْعَالَ شُّكْرٍ لله. فإِنَّهُم سَيُقَدِّرُونَ خِدْمَتَكُم هذِهِ، فَيُمَجِّدُونَ ٱللهَ عَلى طَاعَتِكُم وٱعْتِرَافِكُم بإِنْجِيلِ المَسِيح، وعَلى سَخَائِكُم في مُشَارَكَتِكُم لَهُم وَلِلْجَميع. وهُم يَتَشَوَّقُونَ إِلَيْكُم رَافِعِينَ الدُّعَاءَ مِنْ أَجْلِكُم، بِسَبَبِ نِعْمَةِ ٱللهِ الفائِقَةِ الَّتي أَفَاضَهَا عَلَيْكُم. فَٱلشُّكْرُ للهِ عَلى عَطِيَّتِهِ الَّتِي لا وَصْفَ لَهَا!”

 

You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you and bear with you
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 09/37-45/:”On the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a great crowd met him. Just then a man from the crowd shouted, ‘Teacher, I beg you to look at my son; he is my only child. Suddenly a spirit seizes him, and all at once he shrieks. It throws him into convulsions until he foams at the mouth; it mauls him and will scarcely leave him. I begged your disciples to cast it out, but they could not.’Jesus answered, ‘You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you and bear with you? Bring your son here.’While he was coming, the demon dashed him to the ground in convulsions. But Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, healed the boy, and gave him back to his father. And all were astounded at the greatness of God. While everyone was amazed at all that he was doing, he said to his disciples, ‘Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into human hands.’ But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was concealed from them, so that they could not perceive it. And they were afraid to ask him about this saying.”

 

*The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
*Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Second Letter to the Corinthians 09/1a.05-15./:”Now it is not necessary for me to write to you about the ministry to the saints, So I thought it necessary to urge the brothers to go on ahead to you, and arrange in advance for this bountiful gift that you have promised, so that it may be ready as a voluntary gift and not as an extortion. The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. As it is written, ‘He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever.’He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; for the rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to  Through the testing of this ministry you glorify God by your obedience to the confession of the gospel of Christ and by the generosity of your sharing with them and with all others, while they long for you and pray for you because of the surpassing grace of God that he has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”.
