Hebrews 13:1-3 (NIV)
Concluding Exhortations
13 Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. 3 Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

 

Choose one or two key verses from the Scripture reading in 2 Corinthians today and do at least one of the following for your chosen verse(s).
A –  Ask questions of the text (Who, what, why, where, when)
– Emphasize certain words as you read the text over & over
I  –  In your own words (paraphrase one or more verses)
O  – Other verses in the Bible that say the same or opposite
U  – Use it; apply the truth from the text in your life

 

Jesus, You are our Good Good Father. By, Your grace, we are all brothers and sisters in Your name. Instead of seeing differences in each other, help us find unity in faith. Together let us proactively welcome those who do not know You as Lord. Let us recognize those in need where together we can respond. When we help others, the one we are actually serving is You – we show others the love of God that You have shown us so that they too can share in it. Allow kindness to penetrate the walls of resistance. Guide us to do Your will and fill our hearts with the joy of Your Spirit. Amen
