That presupposes, Implies, that the pastor has a workshop and that he works in this shop, commonly termed his study.
"Give attendance to reading" (1 Tim. 4:13) was the Apostle's precept to Timothy. In his judgment, diligent study was an essential duty of a minister of Christ. That his practice was in accordance with his teaching appears not only from his manifold learning, both sacred and secular, which he displays in his writings, but also from his anxiety to have his "books" with him, even when he was "ready to be offered, and the time of his departure was at hand" (2 Tim. 4:6, 13).
