We need to grow in our faith to such a degree that we stand firm. Otherwise we will easily be blown away by lustful desires, temptations and sin. Or else we will lose it in a crisis.

Our loving Saviour laments over the hard heartedness of those who refuse to listen to His call for repentance. For He sees the terrible end results for them. He therefore wants to draw everyone to Him, to save us all. He wants all of us to embrace love instead of wickedness so that He can give us His Grace and peace. Amen

FIRST READING
Isaiah 7:1–9

GOSPEL
Matthew 11:20–24

Jesus began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done, since they had not heard “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For it and I f the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. And as for you, Capernaum:

Will you be exalted to heaven? You will go down to the netherworld.

For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”
