“…correctly handles the word of truth.” There are those who distort His Word, who twist it to serve their own purposes. So how can we know whether what we are hearing and speaking is truth? First, we need to be familiar with God’s Word. Spend time in the Bible. Read it. Study it. Memorize it. Don’t trust someone else’s interpretation–seek confirmation for yourself. Then ask the Holy Spirit to guide your heart and mind. Ask daily for God’s wisdom. He grants wisdom to those who seek it.
