In 1962, John Glenn made history as the first American to orbit the Earth. As the rocket ascended, ground control said, Godspeed, John Glenn. Godspeed comes from the expression, May God prosper you.
Though we dont often hear this word today, the apostle John used it in his second epistle: If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Godspeed (2 John 1:10 kjv).
John has been referred to as the apostle of love, so why would he warn believers against pronouncing a blessing on others? Traveling evangelists were dependent on the hospitality of Christians to provide them with room and board. John was telling the believers that biblical truth is important. If itinerant missionaries were not preaching doctrine consistent with apostolic teaching, believers were not to bless their work by providing lodging or financial assistance.
This is also true for believers today. We are to treat everyone with kindness because God is kind to us. But when asked to financially support an endeavor, its important to always ask Him for wisdom. The Spirit who guides us into truth (John 16:13) will show us when it is appropriate to bid Godspeed to those we encounter.
Read: 2 John 1:1-11
Simple and dignified.

The Fourth of July 1826 was a red letter day for America. It was the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died that day at ripe old ages, although thanks to the primitive communications of the era, neither man knew of the others demise. And on that day Stephen Foster was born in Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania, just east of Pittsburgh, as the last surviving infant of a large family.
In an era before widespread public schooling, Stephen received private tutoring and went to private schools in the region. He hated it. But music was the one thing that excited his imagination, and his musical training from a German immigrant was thorough. It was music that led to Stephens avid reading, and he became a literate man by the standards of his era.
Stephen had as his friends sons of some of the best families in Pittsburgh. He founded an all-male club, the Knights of the Square Table, which met in the Foster home, where he acted as a song leader and then composer. His first works came from this little gathering of friends.
In 1844, at the age of 18, Stephen had one of his songs, written for the Knights, published in Philadelphia. Thomas Hampson is one of our great operatic baritones, and he has made a specialty of Fosters music, which is finally being taken seriously.
Having a real tough time posting tonight.
Hope you & the fam have a great weekend.
Aloha Bigs! *Hugs*

Good evening Mayor & thank you for our daily inspiration.
Trust you & the family are well & enjoying a restful weekend! *Hugs*
Very interesting subject tonight. I guess we all grew up singing some of his songs in school. :)
