Romans 4:20-25; Response: Benedictus, Luke 1:68-79; Luke 12:13-21

Be on your guard

Abraham “drew strength from faith and gave glory to God”. The gift of baptismal faith gives us the strength to know and give glory to God, who is Wisdom. Jesus’ parable about the rich man who put love for money before the praise of God is a warning, not only for the brother who complained, but for everyone. “No one can be the slave of two masters … You cannot be the slave both of God and of money” (Matthew 6:24).

Lord Jesus, keep me safe when I’m tempted to trust in money.
