When Paul wrote to Timothy, he stressed the importance of maintaining his own spiritual health before helping and serving others. He needed to take care of his own relationship with the Lord first before he could attend to others.
What Paul told Timothy applies to us too. When we tank up on our spiritual oxygen first through time in God’s Word, prayer, and the enabling of the Holy Spirit, we keep our relationship right with God. We will then be spiritually alert to help others.
