Have you ever been in a ‘conversation’ with someone in which they do all the talking? They tell you about their lives, their struggles, their wants… When you say something, they talk about how they have experienced the same thing at some point and then go on talking about themselves. They don’t have a genuine interest in you, or you feel like that anyway.
Paul writes about Timothy as an example of one who is imitating Jesus’ genuine love and concern and from whom we are to learn and be inspired by. He begins.
‘I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you. I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare.’ (Philippians 2:19-20)’ (Philippians 2:19-20).
