Wisdom 6:12–16. The divine gift of wisdom “makes her own rounds,” but we need to watch and be open to that gift when she arrives.

Psalm of the Day: Ps. (62) 63
A psalm of trust or, more accurately, of longing for God. The psalmist will remember and praise God in the Temple and at home.

1 Thessalonians 4:13–18. When he wrote this early letter, Paul was convinced that Jesus would return soon to claim his own, whether they had died or not. Paul was wrong about the timing but right about the fact that the initiative belongs to Christ.

Matthew 25:1–13. Once again the initiative belongs to God; our job is to be prepared when God acts.
