30 August 19.

Real life has gotten hectic. Yesterday I had to attend a wake for a colleague who died suddenly, and this weekend we are visiting an old friend of kea’s who has been told his time is numbered.  We will be travelling for a week, and there will be no computer with us. The texts from today are programmed for the week.

1 Peter 4:7-11
7 The end of all things [a]is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of [b]prayer. 8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Be hospitable to one another without complaint. 10 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 Whoever speaks, is to do so [c]as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving [d]by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
