First Reading for the 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

Jeremiah 17:5-8

Summary: Those who trust in people are like barren bushes in the desert. Those who trust in the LORD are like fruitful trees by the water.

Trust in the Lord

Thus says the LORD:

Cursed is the one who trusts in human beings, who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the LORD.

He is like a barren bush in the desert that enjoys no change of season, but stands in a lava waste, a salt and empty earth.

Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD.

He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it fears not the heat when it comes; its leaves stay green; in the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit.
