covering up our bad habits...

April 20, 2012

1 Timothy 4:3-5

V 4 For everything created by God is good…

Paul is giving several examples of how the evil in the heart of man can corrupt what God meant for good. In this specific instance, Paul is dealing with marriage and food. God created both marriage and food for us to enjoy. They are both necessary for us to succeed and ultimately be able to live godly lives that glorify Him. There are times when God calls us to fast from all manner of things, but that’s not what these verses were dealing with. These verses are dealing with people who will corrupt what God made for good in order to make their evil lives and intentions look good. In other words, they are trying to make themselves look way better than they were. This is something we all do. It’s much easier to try to cover up our bad habits than to actually do what God commands of us
