UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
We are surrounded by all kinds of advice. What is the best advice to follow? Paul charged Timothy to embrace certain attitudes and actions and avoid others in order to strengthen his faith.
The words of wisdom shared by Paul to Timothy are still true, relevant, and practical today. Paul’s words are still powerful because those words came from a true, relevant and practical God who loves His children and like any good parent, wants to see them succeed in life.
Lord, help us to focus our attention on things that truly matter for eternity rather than things that matter for the moment. Let us build our hopes on things eternal and hold on to your unchanging hand. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
