Caring for God’s family

1 Don't correct an older man, but encourage him like he's your father; treat younger men like your brothers, 2 treat older women like your mother, and treat younger women like your sisters with appropriate respect. 3 Take care of widows who are truly needy. 4 But if a particular widow has children or grandchildren, they should first learn to respect their own family and repay their parents, because this pleases God. 5 A widow who is truly needy and all alone puts her hope in God and keeps on going with requests and prayers, night and day. 6 But a widow who tries to live a life of luxury is dead even while she is alive. 7 Teach these things so that the familiesa will be without fault.
