Bound By Love

  
Paul saw a need for leadership in Timothy’s life. So he took it upon himself to fulfill that need. He prayed for Timothy. He encouraged him. He counseled him on how to become a mature Christian. 

Paul referred to Timothy as his “beloved son”.

To have that type of a bond with our fellow Christians is something that we can strive for. To give encouragement in love. To receive counsel in grace. To pray for one another diligently. 

We would all benefit from acting on the love we have for one another.

I & II Timothy

Let the Son Shine In

IMG_0572

As I drove the kids to school this morning I was blinded by the sun. I had sunglasses on. My visor was down. The sun was powerful. My actions were a direct response to it’s presence.

I thought “what is the Lord trying to show me?”

I came home and opened the Scripture to Psalm 31:16: “Make thy face to shine upon thy servant.” That’s what David asked of the Lord.

Why would David pray something like that?

Then the Lord showed me–my every move this morning was made based upon the presence of the sun. What if the presence of the Lord shone that brightly upon me? What if I were so close to the Son that I wouldn’t be able to make a decision without taking Him into consideration?

David was a wise man to seek God’s presence in his life. We should learn from him.
