1 Timothy 4:15-16
Be diligent about this work, throw yourself into it, so that your progress may be clear to everyone. Pay attention to yourself and to the teaching, continue in it, for by so doing you will deliver both yourself and those who hear you.
I am continuously drawn to these verses. As believers we must be diligent as Sha’ul urges Timothy digging into the Word so ADONAI can write it on our hearts and praying for guidance in our lives. This is how we pay attention to ourselves so we can minster to others. It is like the safety briefing on an airplane, if the cabin loses pressure parents have to get the oxygen on themselves first so that they can assist their children. So, it is the same for the body of believers, we must attend to the teachings of ADONAI first before we and share them with others. Lord let me always start my day communing with You. Continue to shape me into the man You would have me be. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
