Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by God’s will, for the sake of the promise of life in Christ Jesus:
To Timothy, my dearly loved son.
Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience as my ancestors did, when I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day. Remembering your tears, I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy. I recall your sincere faith that first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and now, I am convinced, is in you also.
Therefore, I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.
2 Timothy 1:1-7 (CSB)
The legacy of Timothy’s faith and ministry started first in his grandmother, two generations before him. We cannot underestimate the long-lasting power and impact of the Holy Spirit when we see how the good work that began in them continued on in Timothy and to many more through his ministry.
As women, as grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, as leaders, let’s remember that what seems like ordinary work can sow seeds for God’s kingdom to break through, now and in generations after us. Let’s not despise the mundane but embrace every small task He sets before us and live out our faith with a spirit of power, love, and sound judgment.
Lord, let Your kingdom come through us.
