42 Days of Spiritual Detox

September 23 - 2 Timothy 3:1-9
Paul was warning Timothy in this passage, but it is also a warning for us today. We need to be aware of the seductive nature of those who say they are godly believers, yet continue to live according to the descriptions in 3:2-5. Paul wasn’t saying we should never go near people like this; he is, however, warning us those who are like this will not bring us closer to God. Rather they will begin to persuade us to imitate their behavior: knowing about God but not living like he would want us to. Whom do you surround yourself with? Those who are in our closest circle of friends should be those who will encourage us to live godly lives, thus growing in our walk with God.
