In 2 Timothy 1, the apostle Paul addresses a young follower of Christ named Timothy. Paul tells Timothy that he is praying for him night and day and remembers the genuine faith that is in him. Genuine is another word for honest, pure, or sincere. But where did Timothy get his genuine faith from? Verse 5 says it dwelt first in his grandmother, Lois, and then his mother, Eunice. This genuine faith that Eunice and Lois had is something that we also should gain.
