First Reading for the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Sirach 3:17-18, 20, 28-29

Summary: Be humble in all you do, and you will be loved. Seek wisdom, avoid what is beyond you, and give alms to atone for sins.

The Value of Humility

My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.

Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God.

What is too sublime for you, seek not, into things beyond your strength search not.

The mind of a sage appreciates proverbs, and an attentive ear is the joy of the wise.

Water quenches a flaming fire, and alms atone for sins.
