The Most Foolish Thing We Can Do

Scripture readings:

Galatians 3:1–5

O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain? Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—

Psalm 125:1–5

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, 
which cannot be moved, but abides forever. 
As the mountains surround Jerusalem, 
so the Lord surrounds his people, 
from this time forth and forevermore. 
For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest 
on the land allotted to the righteous, 
lest the righteous stretch out 
their hands to do wrong. 
Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, 
and to those who are upright in their hearts! 
But those who turn aside to their crooked ways 
the Lord will lead away with evildoers! 
Peace be upon Israel!
