Qualifications for Deacons

8 1Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued,a2not addicted to much wine, 3not greedy for dishonest gain. 9 They must 4hold the mystery of the faith with 5a clear conscience. 10 And 6let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless. 11 7Their wives likewise mustb be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, 8faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons each be 9the husband of one wife, 10managing their children and their own households well. 13 For 11those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
