Psalm 86:1-5 (RSV)

A Prayer of David.

86 Incline thy ear, O Lord, and answer me,
    for I am poor and needy.
Preserve my life, for I am godly;
    save thy servant who trusts in thee.
Thou art my God; be gracious to me, O Lord,
    for to thee do I cry all the day.
Gladden the soul of thy servant,
    for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
For thou, O Lord, art good and forgiving,
    abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee.

 

Matthew 10:40-42 (RSV)

Rewards

40 “He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me. 41 He who receives a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.”
