Perfect Practice – 1 Timothy 4:7-8

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

1 Timothy 4:7-8
Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

Train yourself to be godly. Well, how do we do that? The answer is actually more simpler than you may imagine. I once had a math teacher that told our whole class in a loud confident voice “Practice does NOT make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect!” His words have stuck with me to this very day. They really have a lot of truth in them. You see, you can practice something all you want, but if you’re practicing the wrong way you’re training yourself wrong. Only when we practice to do something right, will we ever get it right

And the only way for us to train ourselves to be godly is to truly seek to walk in the ways YHWH has given us. Even when we fall, we’re reaching to live it out as Yeshua did. This life is our time for perfect practice. The time will come when we will get to live it perfectly.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
