1 Timothy 3:8; 1 Timothy 3:13; 1 Timothy 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 6:12
Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after , they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called , and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
