Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
2 Timothy 2:22-26
“And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness.”
2 Timothy 2:24,25 ESV
- As a worker for God what are you called to flee?
- What are the characteristics you are directed to pursue?
- Here Timothy differentiates between situations to avoid and useful events in the lives of the unbeliever. What does Timothy instruct you to avoid?
- List the qualities Timothy shares that you should nurture as a servant of the Lord?
- Timothy then concludes with the purpose of your gentle and patient behavior. Share how God can use you.
- Think of the example you give. Are your quarrelsome? Do you get involved in little spats that mean nothing just to prove your point? Do you share the truth with gentleness? Ask God to reveal to you which trait in you needs some Holy Spirit work. Begin to pray each day about the growth of that characteristic in your life.
