2 Timothy 2:15 (ESV)
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,[a] a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
A wealthy woman who was traveling overseas saw a bracelet she thought was irresistible, so she sent her husband this cable: "Have found wonderful bracelet. Price $75,000. May I buy it?" Her husband promptly wired back this response: "No, price too high." But the cable operator omitted the comma, so the woman received this message: "No price too high." Elated, she purchased the bracelet. Needless to say, at her return her husband was dismayed. It was just a little thing--a comma--but what a difference it made!
There is a good example for us as we study God’s Word. We need to read the complete passage and not just one verse so we don’t miss the comma.
Dear Lord, thank You for Your Word for us to study. Help us to take every word and see how it fits as a whole. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
