The Text: 2 Timothy 2:14-21 …. Note: You may have to click on the “read more” button below to reveal the audio link. …. Pastor Dan M. delivers this weeks message, the next in the series : “Living the Truth, the Book of 2 Timothy”. …. The message is preceded by an introduction to the upcoming class and program on “The Story”, a chronological condensed version of the NIV bible , that starts August 24 & 25. …. After the introduction, Dan M. begins his message that shows how our words can hurt and discourage, or they can build up and encourage. This goes for actions as well as words. Our words are an investment in the lives of others. In the reading this week, Paul wants Timothy to keep his congregation away from quarreling and Godless chatter. Godless chatter is like gangrene – it spreads and is toxic. We need to identify where God wants to make a change in us, and ask forgiveness both from God and people we have wronged.
