Genesis 37:1-36; Psalms 11:1-14:7; Matthew 21:1-32

You are our epistle…known and read of all men. 2 Corinthians 3:2, NKJV

The great nineteenth century evangelist, D. L. Moody used to say, “Where one man reads the Bible, a hundred read you and me.” Today fewer and fewer people spend time in serious reading of holy Scripture but Christians are “read” every day. Do the readers see kindness, compassion, patience and purity or something else? Do they see a reflection of the attractive character of Christ and yearn to see more? That is the challenge for us as Christians today. —Paul Young

Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wondrous compassion and purity.
Oh! Thou Spirit divine all my nature refine,
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me. —Tom M. Jones
