June 2 - 1 Timothy 1-3

Read: 1 Timothy chapters 1, 2, and 3 (CEB, NIV, NRSV)

Reflection Question: Paul teaches, in 1 Timothy 2, about prayer, saying that we should pray for all people, including kings and those who are in positions of authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. (1 Timothy 2:2)  What would happen if all believers prayed faithfully for those in positions of authority, especially if they disagreed with them?  What can you do to make certain you are faithful to praying that way?
