The Goal

 

Love
from a pure heart

from a good conscience
from sincere faith

not giving need to
senseless disputes

but to godly edification
and grace.

***********

I can follow good godly instruction for You are with me.

**********

“. . .nor to pay attention to legends (fables, myths), and endless genealogies, which give rise to useless speculation and meaningless arguments rather than advancing God’s program of instruction which is grounded in faith [and requires surrendering the entire self to God in absolute trust and confidence].”

“But the goal of our instruction is love [which springs] from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.”

1 Timothy 1:4,5 AMP
