Scripture

  1. 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 – All Scripture is God-Breathed  ( Link )
    • 16 Instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work
  2. Proverbs 25:14 – More Proverbs of Solomon ( Link )
    • 14 Like clouds and wind without rain is the man who boasts of gifts never given.
  3. Jude 1:10-12 – God’s Judgment on the Ungodly ( Link )
    • 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
      11 Woe to them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
      12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit wither, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

 

Beloved

Beloved, a lot of the emails and phone calls you will get these days are “just a waste of time and attention“.

They are there and make it through “just to train you“.
