  1. 2 Timothy 2
    4a Whoever serves in the military doesn’t get mixed up in non-military activities.

    We had a pastor once tell us about when he was in the military. His position was to guard by this one fence with civilians nearby. A family he became familiar with seeing daily would nod as they walked by near their home. Even tho' "acquaintance" he could not accept food from them as he was the soldier guarding the village ~ still did not make him one of them.

    5 Whoever enters an athletic competition wins the prize only when playing by the rules.

    Our daughter has mentioned to us the exhaustion she experiences after a race when she has not conditioned herself in advance with training daily.

    9 I’m suffering disgrace for spreading this Good News. I have even been put into prison like a criminal. However, God’s word is not imprisoned.

    Important to remember!

    10 For that reason, I endure everything for the sake of those who have been chosen so that they, too, may receive salvation from Christ Jesus with glory that lasts forever.

    13 If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful
    because he cannot be untrue to himself.

    22 Stay away from lusts which tempt young people. Pursue what has God’s approval. Pursue faith, love, and peace together with those who worship the Lord with a pure heart.

    24-26 A servant of the Lord must not quarrel. Instead, he must be kind to everyone. He must be a good teacher. He must be willing to suffer wrong. He must be gentle in correcting those who oppose the Good News. Maybe God will allow them to change the way they think and act and lead them to know the truth. Then they might come back to their senses and God will free them from the devil’s snare so that they can do his will.
