Thoughts: Dear Timothy,
I love you as if you were my own now. I pray for you every day.
When we said good-bye, you cried. I am anxious to see you again.
Your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice are fine Christian women, and I am sure you honor their teaching.
Timothy, you are a gifted young man. Use your talents to preach the good news of Jesus Christ, as I have taught you. Help people to understand that Christ has conquered death and has brought life to everyone.
Don’t be ashamed of me because I am now a prisoner. I am counting on you, with your youth and your strength and your winning way with words, to open people’s hearts to the love of Jesus Christ.
Remember that the Comforter is always with us.
Discussion: What is the most important part of Paul’s letter to Timothy?
Activity: Write a letter to a young person telling him or her of your love and your confidence in his/her ability.
Remember in prayer this week Audrey Cowsert, Chris Gullion, Vivian Hansard, Julie Olsavsky and Mildred Parker.
