Daily Lectionary with Prayers
and Reflections on Scripture and World
It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Knowing love, showing love, Reflection on 1 John 3:16-18
We know that God loved us because of what Christ has done for us. God's love came to us before we had done anything to deserve it. Because God loved us, we are supposed to help those in need.
Because God loved us. Not in order to get God to love us. That's already happened.
And love is not just that warm emotion. The love in this letter is acted out in deed.
