2 Timothy 3:2  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
For men shall be lovers of their own selves.
In this epistle we have a description of God’s house on earth in disorder. It’s called a “great house”. This includes many professing Christians who are not really born again - they just say they are. In our verse today we have a long list of characteristics of those who are not true children of God. And it begins with “lovers of their own selves.” When found in real Christians, self-centeredness and selfishness are sinful attitudes which lead to many problems. Let us all try to occupy our thoughts with the Lord Jesus, to give Him the first place in our lives, and not to put ourselves in the limelight.
