God’s Word

Here’s what happened when Rebekah, Abigail and their mom, Michelle, read ‘God’s Word’ together.


Twins Rebekah and Abigail are 11 years old and both like soccer.

Rebekah asked: Why does Paul only talk to Timothy instead of any other man or woman that is around him?


Michelle said: Paul is addressing Timothy because Paul is training and mentoring Timothy for ministry.

And Abigail wanted to know: Why does Paul write a letter to Timothy when he could go and talk to him in person?

Michelle explained: Paul wanted to get his thoughts on paper. Travel back then was difficult so they couldn’t just get together. Paul also wanted to have this written down so that someday Timothy could pass along the same teaching.
