1 Thessalonians 3:9-13
How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy that we feel before our God because of you? Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you face to face and restore whatever is lacking in your faith. Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus direct our way to you. And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we abound in love for you. And may he so strengthen your hearts in holiness that you may be blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.
Food For Thought:
In this passage of Scripture, the apostle Paul reminds the congregation at Thessaloniki about their call as Christians. The word that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is love. How can you spread God’s love to others? What is a way that you can reach out to those who are on the margins of society?
God of the living,
with all your creatures great and small
we sing your bounty and your goodness,
for in the harvest of land and ocean,
in the cycles of the seasons,
and the wonders of each creature,
you reveal your generosity.
Teach us the gratitude that dispels envy,
that we may honor each gift as you cherish your creation,
and praise you in all times and places. Amen.
