They should be proud of the work they've accomplished with their tools--that is, proud of the way they have applied God's teachings to their lives. "Study" "Approved" in the Bible: 2 Timothy 2:14-16 http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2Tim.2.14-16&version=NIV 2009-07-21T20:26:58-05:00 The NIV renders "Study" as "Do your best" in this passage about avoiding godless chatter. These verses say that we should present ourselves to God as one approved and to avoid needless arguments about words.
