relationships that matter

2 Timothy 1:3-7 (JDV)

2 Timothy 1:3 I give gratitude to God, whom I serve with a clear conscience as my ancestors did, when I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day.
2 Timothy 1:4, I long to see you, as I remember your tears, so that I may be filled with joy.
2 Timothy 1:5 I recall your sincere faith that first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and now, I am persuaded, is in you also.
2 Timothy 1:6 That is why I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is in you through the laying on of my hands
2 Timothy 1:7 because God has not given us a breath of fear, but one of power, care, and sound judgment.

relationships that matter

Paul had formed a relationship with Timothy and that young man mattered to him. But before Paul entered his life, two women had discipled him: his mother and grandmother. Those three people had molded Timothy into God’s man for God’s mission. Our relationships matter.

Lord, give us godly relationships, and help us to form them with others.
