Today we read one Psalm, the first chapter of the Apostle Paul’s Second letter to Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah.
Psalm 111. A short, beautiful psalm with this truth: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”
2 Timothy 1 starts out with a greeting and Paul was encouraged by Timothy’s Faith, which he got from his mother Eunice and grandmother Lois. Paul was not Ashamed of the Gospel “for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” Then Paul urged Timothy to be loyal to the faith.
Jeremiah 21. Jerusalem was doomed, and God delivered a message to the house of David.
Jeremiah 22 continues God’s messages to the House of David, the Sons of Josiah, and proclaimed the end of the Davidic line with Jehoiachin. This is one reason Jesus had to be adopted by Joseph according to the gospel of Matthew.
