First Reading:   Jeremiah 17:5-10

These verses compose a poem that is part of a larger collection of wisdom sayings that contrast two ways of life. Life with God brings blessings; the power and vitality of God is active in our life. Life without God brings a curse, the power of death.

Second Reading:   1 Corinthians 15: 12-20

For Paul, the resurrection of Christ is the basis for Christian hope. Because Christ has been raised, those who are in Christ know that they too will be raised to a new life beyond death.

Gospel:   Luke 6:17-26

After choosing his 12 apostles, Jesus teaches a crowd of followers about the nature and demands of discipleship. He begins his great sermon with surprising statements about who is truly blessed in the eyes of god.
