Today’s text

3 John 1: 3-4

“I was overjoyed when some of the friends arrived and testified to your faithfulness to the truth, namely, how you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than this, to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”


What is it to walk in the truth if not to walk in you, Gracious One? What can it be, if not to express your beauty, to share in your giving, to live--in some small or great way--the love whom you are?

This is life. This is living. All else misses the point and fails to satisfy the soul’s deep hunger. You fulfill our hunger as we share what you give in the daily round of our life, with the soul in the bed, the heart who hungers for acknowledgement, the friend or family member who doubts her own goodness as your child, the vacant eyes who can no longer hope for wholeness or joy.

We find joy as we receive and share your blessing. You complete our joy as we know and celebrate the lives of those near or even complete strangers who incarnate your life in their living. But if they bear your life, they are not strangers at all, are they?

Let us walk in the truth this day that we may honor you and bring your joy to those who long for your beauty. Amen.

Pr. David L. Miller
