1- What Not to Do: Don’t Devote Yourself to Toxic People (v. 1) – Never lose your redemptive focus when dealing with unbelievers. It’s a fine and dangerous line between ministering and absorbing. Jesus had this purpose when He was with unbelievers.

2- What to Do: Personally Devote Yourself to God’s Word (v. 2) – The Word of God is intended to help you grow in knowledge of God and His desires to better your relationship with Him. 

3- The Results of Personal Devotion (v. 3) – Devote yourself to God and Become a Strong and Fruitful Follower. Don’t immerse yourself in the ways of sin but instead delight in the Word of God and be blessed.
