May 1: Pursue


Scripture Lesson: 1Timothy 6:11-16


On this date in 1991, Rickey Henderson surpassed Lou Brock as the career stolen base leader. His 939th steal came as the Oakland A’s defeated the New York Yankees 7-4. Henderson’s goal in baseball was to pursue and break the stolen base record. He also holds the career record for runs scored with 2,295, is second behind Barry Bonds in career walks with 2,190, and ended his career with 3,055 hits. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2009.


Today’s Scripture lesson contains some advice the Apostle Paul gave to his young friend, Timothy. Paul urged Timothy to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. What a great reminder for all of us today. If we spend our lives pursuing these things, our faith will not only be strong, but we will continue to grow in our faith daily. We are called to live the right way, to take on the attributes of God, to have a strong faith, to love unconditionally, to endure through the tough times of life, and to be gentle as we live for Him. Paul also wants Timothy to hold on to eternal life that he received when he made his profession of faith.

  1. Have we been pursuing the things Paul wanted Timothy to pursue? Which one is the easiest to do? Which is the hardest?

  2. How can we grow in our faith by pursuing these things?

  3. How can we hold on to our eternal life as believers?

Rickey Henderson was relentless in his pursuit of the stolen base record. May we show the same pursuit of the things Paul calls us to pursue today!

May I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone who actually knows
what they're discussing on the net. You actually know how to bring a problem to light
and make it important. More and more people need to look at this and understand
this side of the story. I can't believe you're not more popular because
you most certainly have the gift.
