It's Day 24 and we're in 1 Timothy 5.
One reason to be in the Bible regularly? It provides the answers to life's most pressing questions: "Why am I here?" "What value does my life have?" "What does God want out of me?" "What does a life well spent look like?" For all the time we spend daily on trivial things, it's essential that we spend some time on the big questions.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 22 - We bear part of the responsibility when we put the wrong people in leadership positions. That's one reason we need to be careful and prayerful about those choices.
- Verse 9 - There was a list of widows who received financial help from the church and Paul is here talking about the requirements for being on that list.
- Verse 12 - "previous pledge" - Apparently getting on this list involved taking a pledge, perhaps to devote yourself to more prayer or something like that.
- Verse 23 - Timothy had some medical problems and Paul advises him to use a little wine to help with that.
