Psalm 139:14 KJV
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Proverbs 18:24
A man who has friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

From that point forward, Paul mentored Timothy by equipping him for the tasks of ministry, empowering him for success, employing him for effectiveness at the church in Ephesus, and by communicating his love, respect, and appreciation for Timothy as a son, brother, and messenger of Christ.

It exhorts Timothy to fulfill his duties faithfully and to instill in his congregation traditional beliefs, notions of proper conduct, and respect for one another

.The term no greater love is derived from a well-known verse of the New Testament (John 15): "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13), often invoked in the context of self-sacrifice.

Overall, the message of 1 Timothy concerns sound teaching, while additional themes include how to deal with false teachers in the church; the responsibilities and qualifications of church leaders; appropriate conduct for Christians; and guarding the church's reputation in the world

Meaning & History

English form of the Greek name Τιμόθεος (Timotheos) meaning "honouring God", derived from τιμάω (timao) meaning "to honour" and θεός (theos) meaning "god".

We must remember our Best Friend is Jesus who will never fail us. Many of may say we do not have many friends but that is the reason for us to know our neighbors. To say hello to co workers to open the door to have them become a friend or great acquaintance, in hopes to become a friend. Jesus is that Light that shines bright within us we must let Him shine bright for all to see. We are here to spread The Gospel and Love one another to make this world a better place.

Here at Back to The Bible we are friends and family who can share all with one another. May we all be a Blessing to all in Jesus name Amen
