PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Remain faithfully engaged in living life and honoring God (1Ti 5:11–15). #ServeOthers #ServeGod
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
Paul’s advice to young widows here is not heartless or impervious to their need. Rather it is a practical matter. For younger widows ought to consider remarriage, bearing children and being gainfully engaged with life. Assistance by the church could lead to idleness and sin (which it had already done – v15). So this is good advice to younger widows…good advice to anyone.
Too much idle time can lead to harmful things. So, throw yourself into engagement with life. Don’t sit around idol, getting into everyone else’s business. Give yourself to serving others and serving God. Lord, whatever my lot in life may be, may I use my life to the fullest to engage with living and in honoring you.
