About Today Readings

St Irenaeus.
Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18. Psalms 104(105):1-4, 6-9. Matthew 7:15‑20.

The Lord remembers his covenant for ever — Psalms 104(105):1-4, 6-9.

‘Beware of false prophets!’ says Jesus. ‘You will be able to tell them by their fruits.’

There is a joy, Lord, in not having all answers, but in knowing where the answers lie waiting. You bless us with growth and discovery. The temptation to over-simplify, reduce life and love to a slogan, counters the richness of your parables.

‘How am I to know?’—how do wise observations address Abraham’s experience? Our father in faith meets, as we do, the reality of your eternal self-commitment to us. Wake me up, Lord, so that I may recognise you in your building up of me, your re-creation of me.
