Maundy Thursday (D)

Deuteronomy 30:1-14
Psalm 113
John 7:53-8:11 OR Luke 22:1-38 (39-46)
Romans 2:12-29


Love the LORD your God with all your heart
and with all your soul, in order that you may live.
    Let the greatest become like the youngest,
    and the leader like one who serves.
This commandment is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away. 
No, the word is very near to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart.
    For who is greater, the one at the table or the one who serves?
    But our Lord is among us as one who serves!
Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high?
Yet he raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ashes.
    O LORD, raise us up and out of our need, 
    that by your grace we might eat and drink 
    at your table in your kingdom.
