Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
To Timothy, a beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. – 2 Tim 1:2
Paul took Timothy under his wing. He called him a beloved son, the same way God called Jesus His beloved Son (Lk 3:22). Paul loved Timothy, and invested in him!
You are a Christian today because people invested in you. Someone took time to pray you would be saved. Someone took time to show you Scriptures that would you get through the toughest times in your life. Someone took time to treat you as a beloved son or daughter, even when you didn’t deserve it.
Now it’s time to pass it on. In whom are you investing? Who are your spiritual sons and daughters? The only way the next generation will be stronger than the current one is if we take time to lovingly disciple the people around us as sons and daughters!
Father, give me the time and strength I need to invest in the people around me. Thank You for sending people to treat me like a beloved son (daughter). Help me to do the same for the people in my life who need it the most!
