And, anyway, any one of these scriptures is rich enough for at least one, if not several, sermons. You could, for example, kick off your mini-series on Thessalonians. Thessalonians! You don't get to travel down THAT road very often if you are a lectionary follower.
Or, you could visit the God of Isaiah, smashing bars of solid metal with one hand and doling out hidden riches with the other.
Or, you and Moses could continue your conversation with a God too awe-some (in the original sense) to be seen from the front.
Or, is it the Good News for you this week? How do you preach the Matthew text during what, for many of us, is Stewardship time? What did Jesus really mean - should we pay taxes or not? Or, is this really more about power than money anyway? On a first reading, and maybe on a 4th or a 40th, this scripture sure raises more questions than there are answers. How comfortable are you, as a preacher, asking questions and letting them hang in the air? This might be the week to test that comfort level!
Check in, the comments are open for questions AND for answers. You can find this week's readings and lots of other helpful resources at Working Preacher.
