1 Timothy 1 is a personal letter from the Apostle Paul to Timothy and it starts out with a personal greeting of encouragement and a warning about false teachers for there is no other doctrine. He encourages Timothy to remember to give glory to God for His grace and fight the good fight. An interesting fact in this letter: No slave trader will inherit the Kingdom of God.
Jeremiah 5. Good men were hard to find when not one was upright. God’s judgement was coming.
Jeremiah 6. Bad news. Jerusalem will be under siege.
