Sorry about not posting here last week. That is…if anyone is still reading this and finding it useful. That’s an odd conundrum, isn’t it? If you’re not reading this, you don’t know I wrote it, and there’s no way you could tell me I should stop. Just let me say, if you’re not reading this don’t worry about it. Don’t give it a second thought, which of course you don’t because you haven’t read it.
Paul has a lot to say about leadership. How to treat them, how to correct them, how to appoint them and what to expect from them. There’s part of me that feels really uncomfortable dealing with this passage…I almost wondered at one point if I should have asked someone else to teach it. I decided in the end that I’m called to explore all of the Scriptures, not just the stuff that I’m comfortable with. It’s there in the text, so we’ll deal with it.
Do you feel like there is anything in this passage that applies to your own life or responsibilities? V23 is quite the topic. Do you have any ideas on what Paul is telling Timothy in that verse?
