Nurture Relationships

"Flee the evil desires of youth, and
pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace,
along with those who call on the Lord
out of a pure heart.
- 2 Timothy 2:22

Gee...I wish I had thought of that verse to go with my misspent writing! That would have been perfect!
PS. Love your header with the ginger bread house decorating!

great piece of scripture. i looked it up in two other versions - especially the phrase, "flee the evil desires of youth." i always thought of this being directed to a younger person. i felt that it was kinda silly to think about the desires of my youth - i have enough to worry about now. but these two other versions have helped me see it a little different:

run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. (new living traslation) ..and.. run away from infantile indulgence (the message).

so thank you for sharing this today. i won't look at this passage in the same way again.

Powerful verse. Great reminder for me, for everyone.

Oh that today's youth should heed this Scripture and be saved from all the unnecessary pain and despair!
