“But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.” 1 Timothy 6:11 (NIV)
In the age of Call of Duty, it is always good to have missions.
Save the Princess, recover the secret enemy plans, defeat Loki.
In his letter to his good friend Timothy, Paul lay outs out the battle plan for what a man should be striving for and running to. And while there are some of the typical words we use for what a “manly man” should be made of, there are also words we can’t forget – like love and gentleness.
According to Paul, these are the characteristics of a Man of God. How were we pursuing these traits in our life?
That’s what I will be praying about today.
