Readings for Friday 4 Dec

Today’s readings are Psalm 25.1-22; Isaiah 29.1–14; Matthew 13.24–43.

The extent to which we welcome or dread a visitation from God (Isa 29.6) will depend, perhaps, on the way we are living our lives. If with our lips we honour God but with our lives we disregard him, we may have plenty to fear in God’s arrival on the scene. If, on the other hand, we receive the love of God and live generously toward others, we will welcome God’s coming.

Does the prospect of God’s coming fill me with joy or with dread?

‘Lord Jesus, help me so to live as to be found doing your will when you return, Amen.’
