Paul’s Warning For Timothy Is One We Need Too.

Sometimes the food that tastes good is not the healthiest. Ok, maybe that’s a lot of the time.

The problem is that if we exclusively ate food that tasted great and disregarded how it can affect our bodies, or stopped searching for food that can taste great AND be good for our bodies, we would have premature health issues that could lead to death.

The same philosophy applies to our spiritual lives and it’s what today’s verse, 2 Timothy 4:3 is talking about:

“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”2 Timothy 4:3

In this passage, Paul is writing a letter to Timothy from prison to encourage and warn him…It’s a warning we still need to hear today.

There will be a time when people will not want spiritual “food” that is healthy but simply something that tastes good. Let’s dive into what this means for us today, and how we can grow more spiritually healthy with Jesus each and every day.
