THE GOSPEL

Matthew 6:24-34

Learn from the way the wildflowers grow. They do not work or spin.

Expensive clothes? Juicy food?
Fastest car, giant house?
What should we be
 yearning
 for?

 “See 
the lilies.
Consider them.
Do they spin or toil? Yet
Solomon in all his finery was
never clothed like any one of them.”

Lord,
make us lilies.
Help us trust you for
every single thing we need.


THE FIRST READING

Isaiah 49:14-15

Even should she forget, I will never forget you.

Can
a mother
 forget her infant?

Can
 you, 
O God,
forget us

whom you
 design in love,
create out of love,
redeem because of love?

Nunca,
jamais,
nimmer,
never. 

In you we trust. 

THE SECOND READING

1 Corinthians 4:1-5

Thus should one regard us: as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God.

Lord,
 teach us to unhand everything.
To be good stewards
 of your
 mysteries.

In the
 “letting go”
please help us
  find all good things.
