This week we hear more about how God's people live in light of being chosen as God's people. The Old Testament reading describes a life for the children of Israel that is different than Egypt, where they came from and Canaan, where they are going. Paul continues his letter to the Corinthians talking about building carefully on the foundation that is Christ and instructing them not to put their hope and trust in people and things that are temporary but rather in the one that continues forever. Finally, in our gospel reading Jesus shows us how to live our lives as the salt and light of the world.
