VI.
Do you ever wonder about the people who first received this letter?

Or maybe even why the writer sensed a need to write these words to them, as opposed to other words?

VII.
Did John want to encourage them on the journey of love they were already on?

Did he sense something was getting harder for them on that journey and they needed these words from him?

VII.
Those thoughts lead me to think about what brings me to these words today.

What do I need to hear from John today?

Perhaps in my imagination I can sit with John for a while and ask him what provoked him to write as he did and maybe even why I should pay attention to him today.
