About Today Readings

Isaiah 10:5-7, 13-16. Psalm 93(94):5-10, 14-15. Matthew 11:25-27.

The Lord will not abandon his people—Psalm 93(94):5-10, 14-15.

‘I bless you Father for hiding these things from the learned and revealing them to little children.’

This passage reveals something of the heart of Jesus and his relationship both with his Father and with his disciples, as he speaks a prayer of thanks to the Father.

Perhaps there’s also a touch of resignation in his failure to reach those who seem to have hardened their hearts against him. We all know what it feels like to be misunderstood, or when we fail to get our message across.

Jesus seems to be saying that access to the Father is granted not so much to the intelligent as to those who come to him like trusting children. Let us make time today to attend to God’s presence.
