1 Timothy 5
Key Text: 1 Tim 5:25 – “So also good works are conspicuous; and even when they are not, they cannot remain hidden.”
- There’s something about this verse that I like a lot – I think its the word conspicuous.
- From my Thesaurus on my computer…
Conspicuous: easily seen, clear, visible, noticeable, discernible, perceptible, detectable; obvious, manifest, evident, apparent, marked, pronounced, prominent, patent, crystal clear; striking, eye-catching, overt, blatant; distinct, recognizable, unmistakable, inescapable; informal as plain as the nose on one’s face, standing/sticking out like a sore thumb.
I kind of like to think of this reading – the good things you do stick out like a sore thumb; and even when they don’t, they still get noticed.
