An illuminating reading for Friday is from Proverbs 3:5-6: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." These verses remind us to trust in God's guidance, even when our own understanding falls short.

Saturday's scripture readings focus on serving others with love. We will reflect on passages that encourage us to extend kindness, compassion, and selflessness to those around us, following the example set by Jesus.

A profound reading for Saturday is from 1 Peter 4:10: "As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace." This verse reminds us of our responsibility to utilize our unique gifts to bless and serve others.
