Yesterday, I looked up the Timothy verse that I can say describes me right now:
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young” (or if they think you are inexperienced, or not ready) … “but set an example … in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”
And today, I am reminded of the perfect example of what that verse is talking about. Mama Mary. She is the embodiment of a good example in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. I especially like her being firm as well. She knew what she wanted done, and she had it done – even if that entailed telling Jesus what to do as well (Wedding at Cana).
Now, enlightened that there is actually a person who the Timothy verse is talking about, I can follow her example in being a better person to others.
