As i think about the one that is least. ..it occurs to me that it could be a rich person who is spititually poor. Not just someone who is physically or emotionally poor

Blessings
Very good point!! ...and we can point them to abundant riches in Christ if we are sensitive to their needs and allow God to use us. My prayer...I pray God give us insight and spiritual sensitivity, and just the right words even when we don't realize He is speaking through us.

John 14:21

Can you tell I like reading John ? lol
I love the writings of John

1 John 2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

1 John 2:7 Brethren, I write no new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which you heard from the beginning.8 Again, a new commandment I write to you, which thing is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining. 9 He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

1 John 5:1- Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments

Fish Catcher Jim, I was thinking about starting a study on 1 John in the Bible study threads sometime in the future. Would really enjoy your imput if and when I do.

I think 1 John is probably my favorite book of the Bible

It's one of mine too...greatly encouraging and inspiring!

1 John 2:20- But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

John 15:15- No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

1 John 5:18
We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who is born of God Keeps Or guards himself, and the wicked one touches him not...glory to God!

5:4 for whatever is born of God overcomes the world and this is the victory that has overcome the world. ...our faith

1 John 14:30- ... the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.

John 10- 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

John 16:33- These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
