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 have been diligent about a lot of things. I can get wrapped up in things that I find enjoyable or I see a reward at the end. Yet it wasn’t until I truly understood the overwhelming love of ADONAI through Yeshua’s sacrifice that I have dedicated myself to serving God. By following closely to His Word have I be able to deal with the setbacks and troubles of this life and come out better for it. Lord let my life always be an example for others to see Your love for them in everything You do. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
