1 Timothy 2
PRAY for ALL people.
That’s the header inserted in my Bible to usher in 1 Timothy 2. And 1 Timothy 2 is a doozy friends. The bottom line for me is there is a lot I don’t understand, but I believe the Bible is truth and God’s way is always best. I choose Jesus. Every. Time. And honestly, I think I’m just tired and weary and heartbroken over the divisiveness that seems to be spiraling out of control.
With that said, I’m clinging to the first half of the chapter. Oh, for us to take this to heart and put this in practice...
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4
God, let us love more than we hate. Let us show grace more that contempt. Let us give the benefit of the doubt more than giving our opinion. Let us seek you more than self-proclaimed experts. Let us seek peace more than division. Let us pray more than pontificate. Let us love like you love.
