The Household of God
One of the most prominent ideals in today’s culture is that we each get to decide for ourselves what the purpose of our life is. Is it your career? Is it your family? Is it being the best version of yourself? What if our calling was more than about what is best for us? What if our calling is not about us at all? What if our entire purpose is to be a part of something bigger than ourselves? To bring blessing rather than seek them out? Through 1 Timothy, Paul teaches that the greatest blessing to the world is the Church. We are that church. We are the Household of God.
