Last Days (2)

Yesterday we learned that Paul told Timothy some things he should do during the last days. In our Bible verses today, Paul gave Timothy some examples of people who were sinful. These people encouraged other people to sin, too.
In our world today, there are many people who pretend they are Christians. But really these people are serving the devil. We need to be alert and know when these people are trying to lead us away from God.
Verse 8b says that these people are “against the truth.” What is truth? Truth is what we find in the Bible. If we want to know the truth, we need to read the Bible and learn from it. Then we will be able to find these false teachers and stay away from them.
Be alert today. Pay attention to what people are teaching. Compare their teaching with the Bible. And if these people teach false things, don’t follow them.
Follow Paul’s advice today and stay faithful to God.
