“Train yourself to be Godly….”   1 Timothy 4: 7,8

More mentor-counsel from Paul to the young man Timothy. “Train yourself to be Godly.” I don’t read it to mean that I should train myself ONLY to be Godly; there are a lot of other things I need to train myself for as I prepare for all that life holds in store. But I see Paul telling his friend, “Above anything and everything else, be SURE you are training yourself to be Godly.

“Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance…”    1 Timothy 1:15-16

Timothy was a young man, many believe he was about college age, and was the spiritual mentee of Paul. How cool to have the apostle Paul as a mentor!! He starts out in his first letter to his young friend and mentee with some pretty direct and clear counsel—“Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance.” What comes next should be something Timothy listens closely to! It might just be a good thing for me to listen closely to also!!

I had enough responses to yesterday’s GMU about the spiritual discipline of Scripture memorization that I think I will break from my tradition and share this morning a brief description of what I have done.  First, remember it is a discipline. It takes effort. The “blessing” did not normally come from the effort, it came as a result of the effort. The basic idea is two-fold:

I use as many senses as I can
I use repetition in as many forms as I can

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19

Paul is sort of wrapping things up in his wisdom letter to the church in Philippi. Here’s my summary of his summary!
