Book Review Friday – 1 Timothy I have to be hones…

Book Review Friday – 1 Timothy

I have to be honest. This was the toughest one so far for me. The previous 2 weeks that I have been reading have seemed easy and I had plenty of lightbulb moments and felt sure of what God was trying to show me. I couldn’t wait to write my reviews. This week I didn’t feel the same at all. I’d like to thank Charmin for being honest last week when she was having a little trouble with Ruth becuase I think I might have tried to make something up this week in fear of being the only one who didn’t get anything out of it ๐Ÿ™‚ So, I feel like it’s ok for me to tell you that I came up with way more questions than answers with 1 Timothy.

One verse stood out to me in particular. Chapter 2:10 For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do. I have issues with vanity sometimes…what woman doesn’t? Something for me to think about as there are many times I wish I had more clothes, better hair, new makeup, etc. I really should be focusing way more on what I am doing so people who don’t know me (and of course those who do know me) can see that God is at work in me so I present Him and His love and not me and what I look like.

Well, one verse is better than nothing. Maybe I didn’t give this book the concentration it required this week. That could be the case. Logically, I know that it’s filled with things I could have learned. Maybe I’ll have to give this book another try sometime.

I’m off to read other reviews and maybe some of my questions will be answered by you ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know how ya feel, I had questions about some stuff too. I also thought much of it was straight forward, not calling for much digging. You brought up a great point though. ๐Ÿ™‚
