Pass the faith along

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 July 2024

Exodus 1:12                ESV
‘But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad.’

2 Timothy 1:5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.

Notice that this was a living faith that lived first in the grandmother Lois. However it did not stop there. Lois had successfully passed this living faith on to her daughter and they had successfully passed it on to the child Timothy. This made Timothy different to the point where the Apostle Paul can say that He is persuaded that the same faith lives in Timothy. What a great commendation!
Eunice, Timothy’s Jewish Christian mother and his grandmother Lois must have been Timothy’s significant teachers of Christian faith and of the Scriptures. As Jewish women Eunice and her mother Lois would have known the Old Testament Scriptures and passed it on to Timothy. They must have done the same with their Christian faith.
The influence and the spiritual instruction of his grandmother Lois and his mother Eunice on Timothy was of such a nature that Paul could make the connection and he could appreciate and point to Lois and Eunice as models of faith for Timothy. Can people, your children, point to you as a model of faith?
