Friday, August 25 — Psalm 103:6–18
Jeremiah 23:1–32; 1 Timothy 5:9–16
Jesse said to David, “Look into the welfare of your brothers.” 1 Samuel 17:18 (NASB)
Paul wrote: As for Titus, he is my partner and co-worker in your service; as for our brothers, they are messengers of the churches, the glory of Christ. Therefore openly before the churches, show them the proof of your love and of our reason for boasting about you. 2 Corinthians 8:23–24
God who art perfect love, you created us in your image, and so we live in community with one another. Strengthen us to care for family, neighbor, stranger and friend. Amen.
