The Big Read – Daily Read
1 Timothy 4:1-5
v1-2: We are living today in the later times, and one of the marks of this age, is that people will abandon their faith in Christ and worship of God, so we should not be surprised when we see this happen.
v3: “A sign that people have departed from the faith” is “when they command what God has forbidden” and “and forbid what God has allowed or commanded, such as marriage and food.”
v4-5: “Everything is God’s because he created everything,” and “everything created by God is good.” We are not to refuse the gifts He gives. Instead, we are to receive them, be thankful for them by acknowledging God’s power which made them and God’s goodness which gave them, and we are to use them for Him.
