Today's Scripture

2 Timothy 3:2-5

I woke up at about 4:00 AM this morning thinking about a conversation I had with a friend Sunday night.  She was very upset with her brother and said that she probably would never see him again because she is so mad at him.  He lives only about 6 hours away but their father died last month and he hadn't bothered trying to come when "the call" was made to hurry.  And she didn't like the way he had treated their mom when he did finally bother to come about 3 days after his dad died.

Everything about the conversation screamed 2 Timothy 3 to me where human behavior in "the last days" is described.  The "all-about-me", disrespecting of parents generation.  We are smack dab in the middle of it (or the last of the last, I'm hoping)

ANYWAY, I had referenced the verses in our conversation, but, as usual, I had said, "you know, somewhere, it says something like ...."

Ya know, I use to be better at quoting scriptures but with all the new versions available these days it is almost impossible to quote verses!  for me anyway....  I really wish I had stuck with the King James and I would be much further along... that's what I learned growing up.... BUT .... 

So, I decided I wanted to memorize 2 Timothy 3:2-5 and I got up and started by lining three different versions of the Bible up, side by side.... easy enough to do with Biblegateway....  I had the NIV, King James and The Amplified.  But, even side by side they were hard to compare because the Amplified uses so many extra words that they don't stay lined up for long.  I decided to make a chart to help me see each characteristic more clearly.  I had no intention of making a "doodle' out of it... I just wanted to study and learn.  And that's what I did between 4:00 and 6:00 this morning.

I did the chart on the only tablet that was handy, one of my art journals, so as I was looking at it a little while ago I couldn't help myself, there was, after all an inch between the two sections!!  Oh the sections are there because that's how much paper was required for the list...the list goes down then jumps to the right for the rest of the verses.

Anyway, anyway, here it is after I got done "doodling"
