Timothy’s Proven Character

19 But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I also may be encouraged [when I] know {your circumstances}.
20 For I have no one like-minded who [will] sincerely be concerned about {your circumstances}.
21 For they all seek {their own interests}, not those of Jesus Christ.
22 But you know his proven character, that like a child with a father he served with me for the gospel.
23 Therefore I hope to send him at once, as soon as I see {my circumstances}.
24 And I am convinced in the Lord that I myself will arrive shortly also.
