Do you correctly handle the word of Truth?

2 Timothy 2:15   (NIV)

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.

This verse implies that there is a way to handle the truth incorrectly.

Even Satan can misuse scripture
Matthew 4
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

We owe it to ourselves and our creator to make sure we handle the Word correctly.
Way to many people are mishandling the word of God and making his precious word a tool of the Devil. We must learn how to read his word in context, and not just a verse here, and a verse there.
