Teaching and Training, Day 26

Fleeting and pursuing. We are to do both. Read 2 Timothy 2:20-26.

As Paul continues teaching Timothy, we see that he indicates there are things we should be fleeing away from away from and there are things we should be pursuing. We cannot simply do one or the other. If we simply seek to flee from the evil things, we will not know what we should be doing. If we are only pursuing the good things, the evil that has been in our life will continue to hang around.

We must actively choose to do both. We must flee the evil that is around us and within us including our thoughts and desires, along with the temptations that are provided by the world around us. We also must choose to pursue the Godly traits and characteristics that should define our lives.

What are we fleeing from and what are we pursuing today?
