“Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.” 1 Tim 4:12-13
Paul’s two little letters to Timothy were full of practical wisdom about how to lead the church in Ephesus. Paul wrote with stark simplicity and was straight to the point. Timothy had a safety net as long as Paul was alive. He had experience in just about every facet of the spiritual life and he was quick to pass that along to young Timothy, his son in the faith. But, things were about to change drastically for both of them.
