Nov 16, Day 319 - 3 John

Click here to go 3 John

Dear friend, you are being faithful to God when you care for the traveling teachers who pass through, even though they are strangers to you. They have told the church here of your loving friendship. Please continue providing for such teachers in a manner that pleases God. For they are traveling for the Lord, and they accept nothing from people who are not believers. So we ourselves should support them so that we can be their partners as they teach the truth.

What a good report! Oh to be faithful to care for God's teachers and ministers. Too often I've seen criticism of God's workers, when we need to lift them up and take care of them. 

I also liked this reminder:
11 Dear friend, don’t let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do good prove that they are God’s children, and those who do evil prove that they do not know God. 


  1. This is a good reminder to take care of those that are dedicating their lives to the ministry.

  2. 3 John
    5-8 Dear friend, you are showing your faith in whatever you do for other believers, especially when they’re your guests. These believers have told the congregation about your love. You will do well to support them on their trip in a way that proves you belong to God. After all, they went on their trip to serve the one named Christ, and they didn’t accept any help from the people to whom they went. We must support believers who go on trips like this so that we can work together with them in spreading the truth.
