Conspicuous Works

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Timothy 5:24-25

As Paul wraps up his charge to be intentional about pursuing right and Godly living in 1 Timothy 5, he points out in the final verses how choosing to do what is good and right in God's eyes—regardless of whether anyone is aware of it at the time—isn't for naught.

"The sins of some people are conspicuous, going before them to judgment, but the sins of others appear later. So also good works are conspicuous, and even those that are not cannot remain hidden" (vs. 24-25).

Thank you, God, for reminding us that doing what we know is right is always the best course of action.

What did God impress on your heart today about choosing to pursue right and good works? How were you encouraged by the message in these verses? Tami

Tami,

I should have read your words twice,because I became confused and looked up commentaries and others comments.

So finally I will answer today with an AMEN to your words," Thank you, God, for reminding us that doing what we know is right is always the best course of action." It is always to do good to give the Lord honor and glory due to His name!

Timothy was being encouraged to have seasoned leaders who had a good reputation of good works. Maturity is a good quality for a church leader.
