II Timothy 3:16 and 17

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

ALL Scripture is God-breathed. From the doom and gloom of Isaiah, the dryness of the long lists of genealogies, and the symbolism in Revelation, to the beauty of the Psalms, the wisdom of Proverbs, and the grace and mercy in the Gospels: all of it is useful for life and godliness. An electrician doesn’t go to work without his tools and his training. So it should be for us: do not try and live a godly life without our equipment. This verse says that the Scriptures will equip us for every good work. Don’t show up for life unequipped.
