1 Timothy 4:6-11
6If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed. 7Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; 8for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 9The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. 10For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.
11Command and teach these things.
Read Dr. Constable’s Notes.
How is godliness valuable in all areas of our lives? Start with your mind and work your way down, thinking about how you live differently when you are pursuing godliness.
The Heights mission of taking personal risks to bring the gospel to every relationship is spurred on the hope found in verse 10. We toil and strive because we believe God is worth it and His salvation is the greatest gift for all mankind. We do not labor in vain! So, today, if you are feeling weary, look to the hope set before you – eternity with Christ! And don’t you want others to have that same hope? Keep going!
Wrecked Car as a Reminder
“My wife and I witnessed a car accident while walking to a nearby park. We got to be an agent of peace in a crazy situation. The girl who was hit worked for our next door neighbors.

She ended up saying, “You are very positive, and I am very glad you are here.”…” Read more: http://gospelrisk.org/wrecked-car-as-a-reminder/
