Seeking God’s approval should top our list of goals for life. We can find approval before man, but if we seek it not from God, we will miss everything good. Therefore, be diligent to be what you know God wants you to be,

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2.15). 

You present yourself approved to God by working in the word and understanding the different parts of it, what parts apply and what parts do not apply. No easy task, this is.


  • Do you know how to determine what applies to Christians and what parts of the Bible we merely learn from as examples?
  • In a given week, how much time do you spend in the word of God?
