What's for dinner?
Many see the Word of God. . .few observe!
Paul has given a charge to Timothy that is essential for every leader in the Kingdom of God. We have talked about the reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. What do you give to those who you mentor?
2 Timothy 2:2 (NIV) 2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to
reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.1
Kenneth Wuest states the following:
Are you passing on your best studies, illustrations, thoughts and teaching to those who follow you? Imagine a plate of food that you placing in front of your disciples. Does it contain the best you have? Are you holding back on certain items so unreliable men can not steal and misuse that information? Is your disciple fully equipped to pass it on?
