The kingdom of God is like yeast:
a woman takes it and mixes it with flour until the dough is risen.
The kingdom of God is like a buyer looking for fine pearls.
When he finds one exceptional pearl,
he sells everything he has, and buys it.
Listen to Jesus who proclaims good news,
which he alone fulfills.
Gospel Reading - Salt and Light
13“You are the world’s seasoning, to make it tolerable. If you lose your flavor, what will happen to the world? And you yourselves will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
14You are the world’s light — a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. 15-16Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.. . . . .Matthew 5:14-16
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
