I'm really enjoying it and wanted to share with you my "insights" from today's reading in 2 Timothy
2 Timothy 1:5 (New Living Translation)
5 I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.
I love this verse in Timothy! I was not raised in a strong Christian home so I find it encouraging to see the impact I could have on my children. I also have a husband with a strong but quiet faith and I like that Timothy, as a boy, was encouraged in his faith by women not men (at least not that is mentioned). My big thing that caught me today was that he had a memorable faith. It said he remembered his genuine faith. As a woman I think I worry a lot about how I look when I am with people but I've never really thought about trying to be memorable because of my faith. What an awesome thought. That I could meet somebody and they later would say, "Oh yeah. I remember you! You had such a genuine faith! I never forgot meeting you."
Today that was my prayer, as I meet people I will be remembered in a good way for my genuine faith whether they agree with the Christian faith or not. I have met a few people in this life that I totally disagree with but can walk away thinking they are very... I don't know the words... very kind, strong, smart and sensitive when it came to sharing their thoughts even though they knew I didn't agree. Maybe I can be one seed that is planted in a persons life that changes their view of Christianity from bad to good. A person who gets them thinking about the Lord. Now that is something to strive for! That's how I want to be remembered!
