November 4 - Love Your Neighbor. Mark
12:28–34. A scribe asked, "Which command-
ment is the first of all?" Jesus answered,
"The first is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our
God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord
your God with all your heart, and with all
your soul, and with all your mind, and with
all our strength.' The second is this, 'You
shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There
is no other commandment greater than
these." Painting, Moses and the Ten

Capacity. Mark 12:38–44.  A poor
widow came and put in two small
copper coins, which are worth a

widow has put in more than all
those who are contributing to the
treasury. For all of them have
contributed out of their abun-
dance; but she out of her poverty..." Painting: The Widow's Mite, James Tissot (1836–1902). Public domain.

November 18 - Wait in Faithfulness. 
Mark 13:1–8. As he came out of the

left here upon another; all will be
thrown down." Image: Destruction of
the Temple foretold. Caspar Luyken. In
