Who You Are
welcome to today's our daily bread I'm sure and Boise and I've titled out reading Who You Are
 in 2011 after a decade of childlessness my wife and I chose to start afresh in a new country exciting is the move was it required me leaving a broadcast Korea which I missed feeling lost I asked my friend Liam for advice
 what my calling is anymore I told Liam dejectedly you're not broadcasting here. I said I wasn't
 and how is your marriage
 surprised at his change of topic I told Liam that Maryland I would doing well we'd faced hot bike together it emerged closer through the ordeal
 commitment is the core of the Gospel he said smiling who held the world needs to see committed marriage is like yours you may not realize the impact you having already beyond what you do simply by being Who You Are
 what a difficult work situation lift Timothy dejected the Apostle Paul didn't give him Korea goals instead he encouraged Timothy to live a Godly life setting an example to his speech conduct love Faith and Purity he would best impact of us by living Faithfully
 it's easy to value our lives based on a Career Success when what matters most is out character I had forgotten that but a word of Truth a gracious act even a committed marriage can bring great change because through them something of God's Own goodness touches the world
 today's scripture reading is from 1st Timothy Chapter 4 verses 12 to 16
 don't let anyone look down on you because you are young but set an example for the Believers in speech and conduct in love and faith and in Purity until I come devote yourself to the public reading of scripture to preaching into teaching do not neglect to gift which was given you through prophecy when the body of Elders lay their hands on you be diligence needs matters give you a so wholly to them so that everyone may see your progress what's your life and Doctrine closely person view in them because if you do you will save both yourself and your Heroes
 let's pray together
