About Today Readings

Jeremiah 30:1–2, 12–15, 18–22. Psalm 101(102):16–21, 29, 22-23 Matthew 14:22–36.

The Lord will build up Zion again, and appear in all his glory—Psalm 101(102):16-21,29, 22-23

‘I shall restore the tents of Jacob.’

The relationship between God and God’s people is revealed in the readings today – perhaps most vividly in the Gospel when Jesus appears to walk on water. Jesus shows the disciples the difference between fear and faith. The Old Testament readings reveal a God who hears the prayers of the destitute, the groans of the prisoners and sets free those doomed to die.

What parts of my life would be different if I had more faith?

Do I spend my time hanging on to feelings of hurt and abandonment?

Do I give thanks for moments of grace and healing?

Do I hear the cries of those in need?
