I am sick of being sick. Whole bearing some raw emotions about that fact, I am reminded of a particular Bible verse: 1 Timothy 4:12. My life leaves a reflection on this world. Good or bad. Positive or negative. As a lover or hater.
1 Timothy 4:12 were Paul’s words to his spiritual son, Timothy, and words we need today. They are words God gave Paul, and to us.
“Command and teach these things. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity” (vs. 11-12).
My heart may be frail. It may even break. I may even cry in that rare moment, but God is sovereign and He will use it all. He will help me to be an example to the brethren that is worth setting!
Five areas of my life to be examined:
In what I say
In what I do
In how I love
In my faith
In my pursuit of purity
God bless you all! Sick or not, we all need this lesson…When we fail, He catches us. We can:
Because of who we serve the Lord God Amighty: the holy One!
