This Week's Reading: 3 John

This Week's Reflection Questions:

  1. What stood out to you in this letter?

  2. John gives us a positive example with Gaius’ support and provision for teachers as well as a negative example with Diotrephes pride in wanting to be first. Which can you find yourself identifying more with recently? Why?

  3. Where might God be asking you to use your resources and time this week?

Prayer
Collect For the Fifth Sunday in Lent, The Book of Common Prayer, pg. 219

Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
