Leviticus 25:1, 8-17; Psalm 66; Matthew 14:1-12

Prize for a dance

Captivated by her dancing, Herod promised Salome whatever she wished. Her gruesome choice came at the bidding of her mother, and John the Baptist’s life came to an end. God of my every moment, guide the choices I make and the advice I accept. Keep me safe from selfish pride and from the traps that would capture and manipulate me to another’s advantage, or disadvantage. Strengthen me to faithfully witness your love and mercy, regardless of the consequences. Amen.
