Theme: MANAGING RESOURCES EFFECTIVELY.

Text: “ That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.” – 2 Timothy 1:14.

Comment: In the text above, St Paul admonished Timothy to guide well the good treasure that had been entrusted on him through the holy spirit properly put. The treasure here is the accurate knowledge of God passed on to him.  This treasure also includes instructions in righteousness and other statutes of God. God instructed Moses: “Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.” Deuteronomy 4:5,6.

The God’s Kingdom Society (GKS) has many “treasures” by way of doctrines and Instructions of God, many of which have been put down in form of publications, that guide our day to day activities. (2 Timothy 3:16,17) These “treasures” should be well guarded, preserved and passed on to our children’s children (Isaiah 38:19). “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.” “Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.” – 2 Timothy 3:14;  Titus 1:9.
