2 timothy 2 15 22
2 Timothy 2:15-22
  • Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
  • Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
  • If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Focus, Strive and Obey

we are easily distracted
We Are Easily Distracted

Despite the numerous gadgets and apps that help us get through our days, research suggests that only 2% of people can multitask effectively. As for the remaining 98%? They're actually lessening their productivity without even realizing it.

This infographic from OnlineCollege.org details how often we confuse multitasking with actual distraction. For example, employees who use a computer for work are, on average, distracted every 10.5 minutes. Students who bring their laptops to class aren't doing much better, since 62% of the web pages that they open during class are completely unrelated to the lecture. And what about the 67% of people who check their email or use a mobile web browser while on a date?

the myth of multitasking
The Myth of Multitasking

In her article Christine Rosen writes,

In one of the many letters he wrote to his son in the 1740s, Lord Chesterfield offered the following advice: “There is time enough for everything in the course of the day, if you do but one thing at once, but there is not time enough in the year, if you will do two things at a time.”


In 2005, the BBC reported on a research study, funded by Hewlett-Packard and conducted by the Institute of Psychiatry at the University of London, that found, “Workers distracted by e-mail and phone calls suffer a fall in IQ more than twice that found in marijuana smokers.”

solomon s advice rest and focus
Solomon’s Advice – Rest and Focus

The Preacher sought to find words of delight, and uprightly he wrote words of truth. The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by one Shepherd. My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Ecclesiastes 12:10-12

A New Effort Rubric - Mike Jaffe

My son’s 4th grade teacher recently sent home an effort rubric that they will use:

4 – Excellent

I worked on task until it was completed.

I was able to push myself when things got tough.

I was able to keep going on the task all by myself.

I enjoyed the feeling of accomplishing the difficult task.

3 –Good

I worked on task until completed

I was able to push myself when things got difficult.

I needed some encouragement when things got tough.


2 – Needs Improvement

I put some effort into this task

I got stuck when things got hard.

My teacher and/or my classmates needed to keep encouraging me a lot!

1 – Unacceptable

I did not finish the task

I gave up in the middle of the task.

No matter who encouraged me, I couldn’t finish the job.

2 Timothy 2:15
  • Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth (ESV).
  • Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth (ASV).
  • Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (KJV).
to obey is better than sacrifice
To Obey Is Better Than Sacrifice
  • And Samuel said, "Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams (1 Samuel 15:22) .
disobedience hinders prayers
Disobedience Hinders Prayers
  • If one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination (Proverbs 28:9).
  • For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil" (1 Peter 3:12).

Practice What You Read
  • you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal?
  • You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law. For, as it is written, "The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you."

(Romans 2:21-24)
