22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22
Paul continued to remind Timothy (and us by extension) what to flee and what to pursue. Just because you’ve fled one thing doesn’t mean you’ll pursue something else. But these instructions were clear. We need to be reminded because life happens. But if it’s always in the forefront of our minds, we’re more likely to remember. If you’ll notice, though, there are four qualities we are to pursue plus people. We cannot underestimate the power of extending gentle hands and kind words can mean.
Reach out today to someone you haven’t talked to in a long time. Just reach out and let the Lord guide the conversation.
