Today we read:
-Food for thought day 281-
• 2 Timothy 2: 15-17
The reason why we sometimes find it difficult to love people is because of the many fairy tales or stories we have listened to. The worst part is, most of these fairy tales or stories we hear, are most of the time about people, places or things built on a lie.
That is why the Word of God says: “Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus,”
2 Timothy 2:16-17 NIV
Whether you like it or not, these stories always spread faster than the truth. That is why as a believer, you must refuse to listen or believe anything that is not the Word of God. These stories will affect your love for God and people.
Love does not believe in fairy tales, but believes in the truth and also speaks the truth. You must learn to build your life based on God’s Word, not on what you hear someone say.
For this reason, we must learn to study the Word, not for the purpose of preaching, but for ourselves. That is the only way we can be steadfast with our love for God and also pursue our relationship with Him.
“Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15 AMPC
Remember: true love does not believe in fairy tales but in the truth. You cannot love and just run after a relationship based on tales.
Stick to the Word and fight for your love relationship with God!
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
Think and act!!!
