Today we read the second chapter of Second Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah.
2 Timothy 2. God, through the apostle Paul gives advice to the young Timothy, such as: Be strong in grace, be not ashamed of the truth as you are an approved worker. One piece of advice stands out; “Flee youthful lusts”.
Jeremiah 23. God will eventually raise up out of the house of David the righteous branch, but until then there will be lying prophets, false prophets and empty oracles.
Jeremiah 24. Jeremiah has a vision of two baskets of figs. There is a lesson there.
