Take heed to yourself and to your teaching

1 Timothy Bible Background

10.24.2018 – New Testament: 1Ti 4.16

To read the Bible in a year, read First Timothy 4 on October 24, In the year of our Lord Christ 2018

By Don Ruhl

In the church, what we teach is not the only important factor, although it is of course a huge one, but listen to what Paul told Timothy:

Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you (1 Timothy 4.16).

Our character is also important, because it will either credit or discredit what we teach in the eyes of those who listen to us. If we take heed to ourselves and to our teaching, Paul assured us that we will save both ourselves and those who hear us.


  • Do you know how to take heed to yourself?
  • Are you careful to make sure that you teach the Bible and not your opinions?
