FOURTEENTH SUNDAY B Lectionary #101

We are obstinate people; we have trouble getting it right; we continually find ways to rebel against what God wants us to do. We need prophets, even if we have trouble recognizing those who come to us, saying: “Thus says the Lord God!”

Ezekiel 2:2–5. Ezekiel’s call to be a prophet includes a warning that he will not be heeded or understood. Still, that is no reason for him not to carry God’s word even to those who are “hard of face and obstinate of heart.”

Psalm of the Day: Ps (122) 123
This psalm of quiet confidence describes the people as a servant watching the hands of her mistress because those hands are the source not only of peremptory commands but also of blessings.

Suggested Common Psalm: Ps (94) 95

If Today You Hear His Voice, Harden Not Your Hearts

2 Corinthians 12:7–10. The mysterious “thorn in the flesh” was some sort of affliction that Paul suffered for a long time. Whether it was physical or mental we do not know. We do know that he associated it with his own failures and with his faith that God’s grace is sufficient, even in such incurable suffering.

Mark 6:1-6. Jesus is scandalous to his neighbors. They know him as ordinary, of no special skills, yet he teaches in the synagogue as one with learning and power. He is “the carpenter, the son of Mary,” so he could not possibly, in their eyes, be a prophet. Lack of faith limits his ability to perform “mighty deeds” that reveal the presence (or near-presence) of God’s kingdom.
