Readings for today’s Mass
Today's first reading from the Book of Proverbs offers several similar morals of stories. There is no story to go with them, but maybe you can come up with something from your own life that applies. Spend some time with them here. Which one speaks to you most clearly?
Like a stream is the king's heart in the hand of the Lord;
wherever it pleases him, he directs it.
All your ways may be straight in your own eyes,
but it is the Lord who weighs hearts.
To do what is right and just
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart–
the lamp of the wicked will fail.
The plans of the diligent are sure of profit,
but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty.
Whoever makes a fortune by a lying tongue
is chasing a bubble over deadly snares.
The soul of the wicked desires evil;
his neighbor finds no pity in his eyes.
When the arrogant are punished, the simple are the wiser;
when the wise succeed, they gain knowledge.
The just man appraises the house of the wicked:
bringing down the wicked to ruin.
Those who shut their ears to the cry of the poor
will themselves call out and not be heard.
