[Jesus] taught daily in the Temple, but the leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the other leaders of the people began planning how to kill him. But they could think of nothing, because all the people hung on every word he said. - Luke 19:47-48
Every few months 2 Timothy 4:3 becomes a trending topic on Twitter. It usually coincides with a pastor or teacher making a statement that another pastor or teacher disagrees with. Usually the statement has to do with homosexuality or who is getting into heaven or the double whammy of whether or not homosexuals get into heaven. That is not really the subject of this post. This post is more concerned about how we use this verse and verses like it to shore up our position and in essence become the people who “gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”

1. Spend time with Family and Friends (preferably sober): While St. Patrick’s Day here in the States has devolved into “hey lets drink green beer” day it is important to remember that in Ireland it is closer in feel to Thanksgiving than Mardi Gras. During Patrick’s day clan and kin were very important. To celebrate this year take some time to honor your friends and family. Strengthen your bonds of kinship and do not let your love grow cold.
