Today’s passage is 1 Timothy 2:8-15. Let’s go!
1 Timothy 2:8 (NIV)
8 I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
On verse 8: Some people stereo typically think, “It’s the man’s job to work and the woman’s job to pray”. But here Paul affirms that one of the most important things a man can do is to devote himself to prayer. When a man devotes himself to prayer, he is much better able to lead in his home, to see things from God’s perspective, to bring God’s wisdom to situations and to model Christ to those in his care (especially his own family).
