Reading for the Day
Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31

  • 10 A good wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
  • 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
  • 12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
  • 13 She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.
  • 19 She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.
  • 20 She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy.
  • 30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
  • 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.

Second Reading for the Day
1 Thessalonians 5:1-6

  • 1 But as to the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need to have anything written to you.
  • 2 For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
  • 3 When people say, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction will come upon them as travail comes upon a woman with child, and there will be no escape.
  • 4 But you are not in darkness, brethren, for that day to surprise you like a thief.
  • 5 For you are all sons of light and sons of the day; we are not of the night or of darkness.
  • 6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.

 

Gospel for the Day
Matthew 25:14-30

  • 14 "For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property;
  • 15 to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
  • 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them; and he made five talents more.
  • 17 So also, he who had the two talents made two talents more.
  • 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money.
  • 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
  • 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, `Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.'
  • 21 His master said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'
  • 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, `Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.'
    23 His master said to him, `Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'
  • 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, `Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow;
  • 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.'
  • 26 But his master answered him, `You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed?
  • 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.
  • 28 So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents.
  • 29 For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
  • 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'
