Today's reading: 1 Timothy 5:17-6:2
Throughout 1 Timothy 5 and in the beginning verses of 1 Timothy 6, Paul is essentially addressing and providing instruction pertaining to conduct inside the church and outside as a worker. There is quite a bit of detailed instruction contained in today's passage, but what stood out to me was the underlying, more general message that we should be conducting ourselves well. It's pleasing to God, it provides a good example for fellow believers, and it allows us to set before those who don't yet have a relationship with Christ an attractive picture of what following Him means and looks like.
How often do you give thought to the example you are setting as a Christ-follower? Think back over your actions in the past week. What's one example where you displayed excellent, godly conduct at work, at home, at church? Tami
