Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, the headland of
Pisgah which faces Jericho, and the LORD showed him all the land—
Gilead, and as far as Dan, all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and
Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea, the Negeb,
the circuit of the Jordan with the lowlands at Jericho, city of palms,
and as far as Zoar. The LORD then said to him, "This is the land which
I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that I would give to their
descendants. I have let you feast your eyes upon it, but you shall not
cross over." So there, in the land of Moab, Moses, the servant of the
LORD, died as the LORD had said; and he was buried in the ravine
opposite Beth-peor in the land of Moab, but to this day no one knows
the place of his burial. Moses was one hundred and twenty years old
when he died, yet his eyes were undimmed and his vigor unabated. For
thirty days the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of
Moab, till they had completed the period of grief and mourning for
Moses. Now Joshua, son of Nun, was filled with the spirit of wisdom,
since Moses had laid his hands upon him; and so the children of Israel
gave him their obedience, thus carrying out the LORD's command to
Moses. Since then no prophet has arisen in Israel like Moses, whom the
LORD knew face to face. He had no equal in all the signs and wonders
the LORD sent him to perform in the land of Egypt against Pharaoh and
all his servants and against all his land, and for the might and the
terrifying power that Moses exhibited in the sight of all Israel.

MATTHEW 18:15-20
Jesus said to his disciples: "If your brother sins against you, go and
tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you,
you have won over your brother. If he does not listen, take one or two
others along with you, so that every fact may be established on the
testimony of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them,
tell the Church. If he refuses to listen even to the Church, then
treat him as you would a Gentile or a tax collector. Amen, I say to
you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever
you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again, amen, I say to
you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to
pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two
or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of

Jesus says that "wherever two or three are gathered in my name, there
am I in the midst of them." Jesus himself is with us when we come
together in his name, sharing our faith in him! Gathering "in Christ's
name" is like coming together for a family reunion, or for the family
meal. As one church family, we are to be united in caring, sharing and
concern for one another.

Jesus establishes a way by which the good relations of those in the
community can be maintained, so that the harmony that exists between
brothers may not be destroyed. A brother who errs must be corrected.
But Jesus here brings in the importance of the community in settling
any dispute. The church is to become a family that helps each member
with his or her flaws. A church member helps another with
imperfections, unhealthy patterns, and the way one sin against
another. That is what families always do, with each member helping the
others grow and become mature people.

and for those who need our prayers the most.

Have a good day!
