2 Timothy 2:15 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
Alot of people quote this passage incorrectly. "Study to show yourself approved." Or whatever.
Let me tell you what is really shown. This talks about someone who isn't lazy and isn't ignorant. This person actively seeks out what is true and accepts it.
Plain and simple, being lazy and ignorant is NOT acceptable. In other words, have integrity!
