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 🙂 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 🙂
