    1 Peter 4:12-19

    12Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13But rejoice in so far as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a wrongdoer, or a mischief-maker;16yet if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but under that name let him glorify God. 17For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God;and if it begins with us, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18And "If the righteous man is scarcely saved, where will the impious and sinner appear?" 19Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will do right and entrust their souls to a faithful Creator.


    Psalms 126:1-6

    1When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy;then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." 3The LORD has done great things for us;we are glad. 4Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the watercourses in the Negeb! 5May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.


    Matthew 7:1-5

    1"Judge not, that you be not judged. 2For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.


    Matthew 10:34-39

    34"Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth;I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;36and a man's foes will be those of his own household. 37He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me;and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me;38and he who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it.

    Gn 13:2, 5-18

    Abram was very rich in livestock, silver, and gold.

    Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents,
    so that the land could not support them if they stayed together;
    their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together.
    There were quarrels between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock
    and those of Lot’s.
    (At this time the Canaanites and the Perizzites
    were occupying the land.)

    So Abram said to Lot:
    “Let there be no strife between you and me,
    or between your herdsmen and mine, for we are kinsmen.
    Is not the whole land at your disposal?
    Please separate from me.
    If you prefer the left, I will go to the right;
    if you prefer the right, I will go to the left.”
    Lot looked about and saw how well watered
    the whole Jordan Plain was as far as Zoar,
    like the LORD’s own garden, or like Egypt.
    (This was before the LORD had destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.)
    Lot, therefore, chose for himself the whole Jordan Plain
    and set out eastward.
    Thus they separated from each other;
    Abram stayed in the land of Canaan,
    while Lot settled among the cities of the Plain,
    pitching his tents near Sodom.
    Now the inhabitants of Sodom were very wicked
    in the sins they committed against the LORD.

    After Lot had left, the LORD said to Abram:
    “Look about you, and from where you are,
    gaze to the north and south, east and west;
    all the land that you see I will give to you
    and your descendants forever.
    I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth;
    if anyone could count the dust of the earth,
    your descendants too might be counted.
    Set forth and walk about in the land, through its length and breadth,
    for to you I will give it.”
    Abram moved his tents and went on to settle
    near the terebinth of Mamre, which is at Hebron.
    There he built an altar to the LORD.


    PS 15:2-3a, 3bc-4ab, 5

    R. (1b) He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.
    He who walks blamelessly and does justice;
    who thinks the truth in his heart
    and slanders not with his tongue.
    R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.
    Who harms not his fellow man,
    nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;
    By whom the reprobate is despised,
    while he honors those who fear the LORD.
    R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.
    Who lends not his money at usury
    and accepts no bribe against the innocent.
    He who does these things
    shall never be disturbed.
    R. He who does justice will live in the presence of the Lord.


    Mt 7:6, 12-14

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine,
    lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.

    "Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.
    This is the Law and the Prophets.

    "Enter through the narrow gate;
    for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction,
    and those who enter through it are many.
    How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life.
    And those who find it are few."
