In 1971 Victor Baldwin published a motivational poster of a Siamese kitten hanging from a bamboo pole with the caption, "Hang in there, Baby." It certainly conveys the ideas of: "Don't give up!" "Don't let go!" "Keep going!" In 1Timothy 6:12-15a that is certainly Paul's message to Timothy, "Hang in there!" It is an encouragement we all need to hear from time to time.
