When I was in school, my teachers gave me homework. In elementary school, I didn’t have much homework. But as I got older, I had a different teacher for every subject. So I had more homework to do. I would often stay up very late finishing my homework.
As a Christian, I have homework, too. But this homework never ends! I am always learning more about the Bible and spending more time in prayer. In our Bible Reading today, Paul reminded Timothy to do his homework. In verse 15b Paul said, “Be a worker who has no reason to be ashamed of his work, one who applies the true teaching in the right way.”
Paul and Timothy did their homework well. I would give them an A+ for their work. What about you? Are you faithfully reading your Bible and staying close to God?
