PRAYER: Please pray for hope tonight. Hope for those who are hopeless.
DEVOTION: “A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.” – 2 Timothy 2:24
Oh…..difficult people. How did Paul know that we would be dealing with difficult people in January of 2020. He just did. Incredible how relevant the Bible is at 11:36 on January 28, 2020 isn’t it.
First of all, he is addressing servants of the Lord. Please remember that. We are servants.
He also tells us that we are teachers. Not like the kind in a learning institution. The kind who teach daily. Teach as we talk. As we walk. As we set examples and interact with others. We are constantly teaching about the love, hope and amazingness of Jesus.
So today. Serve. Teach and be patient. Be patient with people that are hard to be patient with.
