1 Timothy 6:1-2 – The Real Reality

November 10, 2013

in 1 Timothy Study

Slavery has been a fact of life for the history of mankind. From the oldest book in the Old Testament, the book of Job we read that he had many servants. As many as 3/4 of the world,s population were slaves of one sort or another at the beginning of the nineteenth century.

We study passages like 1Timothy 6:1-2 (there are more) and think perhaps that this subject has “nothing to do with me.” But, that is not the case at all. These two short verses have a lot to do with understanding Gods priorities in the world and frankly we are surprised to find that His priorities are not even close to ours.
