Timothy Bible Studies- Week 4- Day 4

Scripture
 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

Observation
God wants us to do good and focus on helping others . Not indulge in the pleasures of the world just because we seem to be doing better than others financially. 

Application
Focus on what you can do for others with your position and use your earthly posessions/ wealth to help others.  This will earn your more brownie points with GOD.

Prayer
Dear LORD,
don't let me develop selfish needs and wants by focusing on hording  material wants.  Let me do more good deeds and help others. 

AMEN.

Timothy Bible Studies- Week 4- Day 3

Scripture
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Observation
God tells us to stay away from being drawn by EVIL and focusing on physical/ material wants instead of what is really meant for us.  Keep the faith and stay on the path

Application
Keep focus and stay on the path that GOD has guided us through. Don't indulge in the pleasures of the world as they will bring more harm then good in the end.

Prayer
Dear LORD,
thanks for all the constant reminders to keep my focus on you and your WORD.
AMEN.

Timothy Bible Studies- Week 4- Day 2

Scripture
 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Observation
We came into the world with nothing and will leave with nothing. Money corrupts people and turn them into devils. 

Application
Be Happy and contented with your LOT. You are given what you need not what you want. Don't hanker after money and material possession as it will give you more trouble then good. 

Prayer
Dear LORD,
help me keep my focus on you and not to be envious of material horders.  Let me be contented with what you give me.
AMEN.

help me stay away from pre-judgement and lead be to be fair and just.

Timothy Bible Studies- Week 3- Day 4

Scripture
So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.
16 If any woman who is a believer has widows in her care, she should continue to help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need.
observation
God teaches us how to act so that we can protect ourselves against evil. He wants us to be generous to those in need. 
Application
God knows what is best for us and we should trust in him. He will not abandon us nor leave us without help. 

Prayer
Dear LORD,
I know that you have my best interest in heart. Guide me in your ways and let me keep your WORD.
 Amen.

Timothy Bible Studies- Week 3- Day 3


Scripture
Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.
 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.


Observation
God wants us to try to treat people around us well and don't have any ill intentions towards them.

Application
 Treat others how you would like others treat you but at the same time don't be a pushover and carry out GOD's WORD. It is better to do things right by Christ then by man as he is the ultimate judge.

Prayer
Dear LORD,
Help me treat people fair and just while at the same time carry out your WORD + not get manipulated by evil. 

AMEN.
