2 Timothy 4:1-5 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
Reprove: reprimand or censure (someone).
Rebuke: express sharp disapproval or criticism of (someone) because of their behavior or actions.
Exhort: strongly encourage or urge (someone) to do something.
I’m going to leave this out there.
Father, let us be mindful of this lesson. This isn’t just for “those” people. It’s for each of us. Make us face ourselves in light of your teaching. Amen.
