“Flee These Things”

But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness (1 Tim. 6:11).

Four times, Paul warns his readers to flee (twice to Corinthians and twice to Timothy). One of my teachers defined flee “to get on out from, do not get close to it, do not stay and flirt with.” He was commenting on 1 Corinthians 6:18 – “flee fornication.” It is hard to improve on his definition.
