1 Timothy 1:5-7

1:5 the goal of this command is love, out of a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith; 1:6 from which things some, having missed the mark, have turned aside to vain talking; 1:7 desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor about what they strongly affirm.


I much prefer encouragements over warnings, so I warm to the first verse here. The latter two don’t especially appeal to me. I include them as they hint at the (lack of) value of learning without the right goal in mind.
