The first reading today gives us verses 10 and 11 of Isaiah 55, But, for the full beauty of it we should begin our except with verses 8 and 9.
8. For my thoughts are not your thoughts; nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.
9. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so high are my ways above your ways,
And my thoughts above your thoughts.
10. For just as from the heavens the rain and snow come down,
And do not return there till they have watered the earth,
making it fertile, giving seed to him who sows and bread to him who eats,
11. So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth;
It shall not return to me void, but shall do my will,
Achieving the end for which I sent it.
