Biblios Hokku – Timothy

Another book from my Biblios Hokku project.  Click here for the whole Bible in Haiku, or keep reading for more insight on the letters to Timothy.

Paul writes this letter to his “Beloved Son in Christ” to give him instruction in how pastors should conduct themselves.  The book contains the memorable reminder that a ‘labourer is worthy of his reward’

1 TIMOTHY
You have chosen well,
and desire a good work.
Be worth your reward.

In his further writings, he reminds Timothy that “all scripture is given by inspiration of GOD” which is often translated as “GOD-breathed”

2 TIMOTHY
Words breathed out by GOD.
Equipping us for good works -
A holy calling
