A little unsure...

So, lately being confused over many things...I came across these verses. Finding that Paul gives no explanation but only the promise of understanding as a result of reflection, I am now reflecting. Please reflect with me.


2 Timothy 2:3-7Endure hardship with us like Christ Jesus.

Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown unless he competes according to the rules.
The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.
Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

Just yesterday I was thinking I hadn't seen a new post for you in a while. May God give you wisdom in all the things you are mulling over.

Even God, who knows and understands everything, worked six days before resting on the seventh.

It seems that He wants us to work for a while first--whether we know the reasons or not, and never mind if the work is hard, if the sun is hot, if the rules of competition are strict.

When we come to that place of rest and revelation, it will be all the sweeter for the hardship we have endured.

Apt words for trying times. We all have them, thanks.

It's interesting to reflect on the fact that Paul must have known something about soldiering, athletics, and farming. :~)
