Second Reading for the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

James 1:17-18, 21B-22, 27

Summary: All good actions and perfect gifts come from God, who is unchanging. Embrace His word, act on it, and care for those in need to maintain pure faith.

True Gifts and Pure Religion

Dearest brothers and sisters: All good giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no alteration or shadow caused by change.

He willed to give us birth by the word of truth that we may be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls.

Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
