Reading 1
Jos 24:1-2a, 15-17, 18b 

Joshua gathered together all the tribes of Israel at Shechem,summoning their elders, their leaders,
their judges, and their officers. 
When they stood in ranks before God,
Joshua addressed all the people:
“If it does not please you to serve the LORD,
decide today whom you will serve,
the gods your fathers served beyond the River
or the gods of the Amorites in whose country you are now dwelling. 
As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” 
But the people answered,
“Far be it from us to forsake the LORD
for the service of other gods. 
For it was the LORD, our God,
who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, out of a state of slavery. 
He performed those great miracles before our very eyes and protected us along our entire journey
and among the peoples through whom we passed. 
Therefore we also will serve the LORD, for he is our God.”

Text Box: Sunday Scripture 
              Taste and see the goodness of the Lord. Our Catholic faith teaches us that we are blessed with the gift of free will and that this cannot be taken from us. The question is, how will we use this gift? We can  use it to choose to serve the Lord. By choosing to serve God we can come to taste and experience his goodness and love.
               Our first reading describes how Joshua challenged the tribes of Israel to make a clear choice of whether or not they were going to serve God. The reading from Ephesians makes it clear that husbands and wives are to live together in a oneness of love. In the Gospel, many disciples returned to their former way of life, but the Twelve remained with Jesus.
