Psalm: 65


Matthew: Jesus’ words here, like so many others, are a tough sell. It is unfortunate but we seemed to be wired for praise. While there may be some kind of void craving credit – to resist is counter-cultural. Some will say that if one does not seek credit for a good deed or a good job, one runs the risk of being held back or worse, of no recognition at all. At times like that one can see just how think-skinned one is, or just how insecure. Better no recognition than that which only is temporary.

Gospel: Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

New Testament: James 1:19-27

Old Testament: Esther 3:1 – 4:3
