1 Timothy 3:8-13 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
8 Deacons must also be of good character. They must not be two-faced or addicted to alcohol. They must not use shameful ways to make money. 9 They must have clear consciences about possessing the mystery of the Christian faith. 10 First, a person must be evaluated. Then, if he has a good reputation, he may become a deacon. 11 Their wives must also be of good character. They must not be gossips, but they must control their tempers and be trustworthy in every way. 12 A deacon must have only one wife. Deacons must manage their children and their families well. 13 Those deacons who serve well gain an excellent reputation and will have confidence as a result of their faith in Christ Jesus.
