Have you ever attended a marriage retreat or seminar? From what I have learned they have the potential of refreshing or restoring marriage relationships. Any relationship requires work and commitment to keep it growing and strong. We need to rekindle those flames of love and friendship, bringing back the glow and warmth we once knew.
Even those active in service to the Lord need reminders to keep our relationship fresh and vibrant. "And for this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of hands (2 Timothy 1:6 NAS)."
Paul considered Timothy to be his "son in the faith," and like any son he needed encouragement. Maybe Timothy gathered more kindling for the flames by setting aside more time alone with God's word and prayer. Keep the flames burning!
