I Timothy Introduction

I Timothy Introduction

- I Timothy was written as a letter from Paul to Timothy. The Timothy letters are a great modeling example for discipleship.

- We as older believers in the faith should take time to talk with those young in the faith. We should communicate to them the truths we have learned over our time of walking with Christ.

- As parents we want to teach our kids through telling them stories of all the things that we went through and experienced in the hope that they'll learn from both our mistakes, and our triumphs.

- The same should be true about our walk with our fellow believers.

- Our example should be one that they know they can follow.

- And young believers should seek out those older and wiser in the faith to follow and to commune with. Not necessarily does the older and wiser in the faith have to be older than you chronologically. Just because someone is older than you, doesn't mean that they know more than you.

- In 4:12, Paul tells Timothy not to “let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”

- This is a family unit. Children grow up under their parent's and grandparent's teachings, and then they themselves become parents and grandparents. (in the faith)
