This shortest of John’s letter speaks of traveling teachers, hospitality given, discipline needed, and commendation to upcoming leaders. John had become the patriarch of this area as he was very old by this point. He wanted to encourage those who were doing right to continue to fight one. He also want to give correction where it is needed. Many times in our lives we need encouragement to keep pressing on. We need to continue to fight the fight of faith and be gentle and kind to others. Many times we find ourselves like Diotrephes and need to be corrected. Wherever you find yourself today take moment to worship God whether in encouragement or in discipline.
