Training Up

Re:Verse passage – 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (day two)  and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. vs. 15

Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You. Psalm 119:11

I love my Bible. I read it every day. I read it for many reasons, not the least of which is a directive from the Lord to meditate on these words, hide them in my heart, to teach them to my children. The words give insight each time I study them. In our passage this week Paul gives us an remarkable picture of the result of “training up a child.” Paul reminds Timothy that he has trained for this. This thoughtful, intentional grounding given by Timothy’s mother and grandmother begins to bear fruit as he enters the mission field. What are we giving to our children? Are we training them for the work to which we are all called? If we aren’t, who is? If we are indeed striving to be Better Together, doesn’t that begin with a grounding in God’s Word? Let the training begin.
