“You must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of.” II Timothy 3:14. As he was facing death, the apostle Paul reflected on his life. He was not a leaf tossed about by the wind; he was an arrow headed for a target. Paul found his direction and destination in his relationship with Christ. And he wanted to cultivate in Timothy the virtues of a well-lived life. He offered himself as a model. Keeping Christ uppermost in our lives will keep us headed in the right direction and give us the strength to keep going. The postage stamp’s value lies in sticking to one thing until it gets there.
