Psalms 119:105
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. NIV

 
Psalms 119:11
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. NIV

Psalms 119:9

Psalms 119:89
Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the Heavens. NIV

    
Psalms 119:97
Oh, how I Love your law! I meditate on it all day long. NIV

Psalms 119:1
Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. NIV

Psalms 119:130
The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. NIV

Ok…question:
Who were Timothy’s Grandmother, Mother and father?

Again, as we shared knowing The Word is the beginning of living it in all your ways. Yes, I throw these at you so you have a decent challenge; hence my question about the well recited verses.

And this time, I will state it…next time I may not…

In the Bible, what were the names of Timothy’s mother and grandmother and why are they mentioned?

 
We first come across Timothy the great worker for God in Acts 16:1. This was on Paul‚Äôs second missionary journey. Timothy was at Lystra in Asia Minor (modern Turkey). He had a Jewish mother, Eunice ( see 2 Timothy 1:5) who was a believer, and a Greek father (who apparently was not a Christian). He also had the privilege of having a godly grandmother called Lois (2 Timothy 1:5). Obviously he was brought up in the Jewish tradition because Paul tells us that ‚Äúfrom infancy‚ÄĚ he had known the holy scriptures (2 Timothy 3:15). This is a wonderful blessing for anyone, when children are brought up to know and believe the bible‚Äôs teaching.
And, Timothy‚Äôs faith was ‚Äúsincere‚ÄĚ (2 Timothy 1:5). This means that it was wholesome. There was nothing unworthy mixed with it. It was not contaminated with the slightest doubt about God‚Äôs love or power. His faith was also devout. It was the same kind of faith which had lived in his grandmother Lois and his mother Eunice. This faith was firmly based in the Word of God. Every Jew was brought up on the scriptures (the Old Testament), and it was presumably these two ladies who had taught Timothy the scriptures from his infancy. But of course, their faith had been given by the Holy Spirit, who enabled them to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

see 2 Timothy 1:5
