A quote from 2 Tim 3:14 - 17 (www.catholic.org):
14 You must keep to what you have been taught and know to be true; remember who your teachers were,
15 and how, ever since you were a child, you have known the holy scriptures -from these you can learn the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is inspired by God and useful for refuting error, for guiding people's lives and teaching them to be upright.
17 This is how someone who is dedicated to God becomes fully equipped and ready for any good work.
Now isn't it curious that the "holy scriptures" (can't refer to the New Testament, as it hadn't been written when Timothy was a child) is a source of "wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus."
Furthermore, by these "holy scriptures" Timothy "becomes fully equipped and ready for any good work."
That's "fully equipped" and "ready." Good things to be.
