Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time (cycle B)
Isaiah 43: 18-19, 21-22, 24-25
The Lord says: Don’t remember the things of the past. Don’t think about the things that happened long ago. I am doing something new, can’t you tell. I make a path through the desert, I make rivers were there were none. I made people that they might call on me and praise me. But, you did not call on me, you got tired of me. You were bad, and I got tired of it. I will not think of it again. For my sake, I have forgotten your sins.
The Lord wants us to be good. If we are bad, he gives us a second chance, because he loves us.
