I wrote to the church,
but Diotrephes, who loves to be first,
will have nothing to do with us.
So if I come,
I will call attention to what he is doing,
gossiping maliciously about us.
Not satisfied with that,
he refuses to welcome the brothers.
He also stops those who want to do so
and puts them out of the church.
Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil
but what is good.
Anyone who does what is good is from God.
Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.
~ 3 John 1
