POWER SEEKING PRIDE OR TRUTHFUL GOODNESS
"...Diotrephes, who loves being in charge,
...Spreads vicious rumors about us.
...Friend, don't go along with evil. Model the good.
The person who does good does God's work.
The person who does evil falsifies God,
And doesn't know the first thing about God.
...The truth itself stands up for Demetrius."
Excerpts from 3 John, The Message
Our simple, ruffled yellow daylily, "Demetrius", reminds us there are only two types of church leaders:
those who have an agenda, and those who have a Lord.
