TODAY’S READING: 2 Kings 20,21 / 2 Chronicles 33 / 3 John
3 John 11 [ESV] Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.
2 Chronicles 33:12,13 [ESV] And when he was in distress, he entreated the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. 13 He prayed to him, and God was moved by his entreaty and heard his plea and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.
What does good look like? … he entreated the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers.
In a word, humility!
You know me better than I know myself.
Humbly, I seek your favor.
I seek it for my family, for my friends, for your church, and for myself.
Hear my plea.
I know You, and You alone are God.
Teach us to imitate the Christ!
Keep us from imitating evil.
Teach us to serve, for we have been served greatly.
