October 14: First Communion | Genesis 14:14-20

After a military victory, Abraham gives thanks by giving Melchizedek a tenth of all that he had. This spontaneous act of generosity is in thanksgiving for deliverance for both Abraham and his family. The book of Hebrews calls Jesus a “priest along the order of Melchizedek” because he arrives when the time is ripe to celebrate the ultimate deliverance of his people.
