God gives us a precious gift – wisdom and knowledge – so as to do great things for His even greater glory.

17th Sunday of the Year (A)

Kings 3: 5; 7-12; Psalm 118; Rom. 8: 28-30; Mt. 13: 44-52

Read: To those to whom He intimated from the beginning, He also predestined to take the image of His own son, thus making him the greatest amongst all; those predestined were also called; those He called were also justified; thereafter those He justified, He also glorified.

Reflect: God gives us a precious gift – wisdom and knowledge – so as to do great things for His even greater glory.

Pray: That we recognise that the call and our consecration are not a privilege but a challenge for us to attain our ultimate aim; eternal life.

Act: St. Augustine said that what we are is given us as God’s treasured gift to us; what we do of our own volition is our gift to God. What sort of gift are we making of our own selves?
