Genesis 24:34-38, 42-49, 58-67 - The Lord shows Rebekah as a suitable match for Isaac, son of Abraham.  She agrees, so Isaac brings her her into his mother's tent, and she becomes his wife; and he loved her. 
OR  Zechariah 9:9-12 - Rejoice [Israel] .. your king comes to you .. he will proclaim peace for the nations.

Psalm 144 - I will bless your name forever, O God my King / I will give you glory / The Lord is kind and full of compassion / All your creatures shall thank you O Lord / The Lord is faithful in all his words.

Second: Romans  7:15-25a   ... For I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making me captive to the law of sin ...

Gospel: Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30 - Jesus blesses the father for hiding things from the learned and revealing them to children .. no one knows the Son except the Father .. come to me all who labour, and I will give you rest .. yes my yoke is easy and my burden is light.


Praise.  God's kindness and compassion.  The spirit of Christ - humility and gentleness.  God as refuge in difficulty.   Wisdom hidden from the learned.
