2016-02-26 -Lots of Learning
At work, I have spent the last two weeks learning some new technologies that our company is beginning to work with. I am also halfway thru my second semester in seminary classes; this semester is the first half of Survey of the Old Testament. Thus, my brain sort-of wandered straight to one verse, as I was thinking about tonight's devotional topic.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Study to show yourself approved. That's a good goal with God and other things such as classes, work, and other areas of our lives - but this verse is about getting God's approval, not a manager's or teacher's. In fact, God's approval should be at the top of our list.
Study God's word. Take time to not just read it, but to dwell on it and apply it. Really digest it and use it. That should be an activity we are deliberate and passionate about.
Hope you learn something new about God today!
