Chapter-a-Day 2 Timothy 4

Junkfood
You’re going to find that there will be times when people will have no
stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk
food—catchy opinions that tickle their fancy
. 2 Timothy 4:3 (TM)

It’s easier to grab a donut or a candy bar at QuickTrip than it is to make a decent meal. It’s more convenient, feels good on the taste buds, and requires little in the way of real effort.

And it makes you fat, sick and lazy.

A nibble of truth that gives me a shot of inspiration is easier than a dose of Truth that requires me to change. An inspirational quote off of a daily calendar is much easier than studying the scriptures. A religion that requires nothing from me is more convenient than following Jesus – who asks me to die to myself.

And it makes me spiritually undernourished.

  1. Wow – the urgency in this scripture jumps off the page at me… ‘can’t impress too strongly’ ‘get here’ ‘ challenge, warn, urge…’ try hard…
    I need to try harder… thanks for the morsel of truth this am!
