Today’s reading is Acts 20: 17-38
Paul has a mission ahead of him; he knows it is great. Because of this, he knows that he may never see some of these friends again. He is worried about them. He doesn’t know what will happen to them. He knows that false teachers (these wolves) will rise up and try to distort his teaching, try to distort his flock. Because of this, he is asking that are in charge to look after each other, look after the younger, teach the faith, hold fast to what is true. In short, to look after each other.
We live in a world that can be cold at times. We live in a world that can be hostile at times. We live in a world that is full of problems at times. As Christians, as believers, we need to look out for one another. Take care of one another. Pray for one another. Pull for one another. Help one another. We need each other. We need to have each other’s back. In a world that can, at times, make us feel alone, we need to know that we are not. That we are there that we stand in the gap for each other.
Today, may we look out for one another.
