1 Timothy 4:3-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 men who 1forbid marriage and advocate 2abstaining from foods which 3God has created to be 4gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For 5everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is 6received with gratitude; 5 for it is sanctified by means of 7the word of God and prayer.

A Good Minister's Discipline

6 In pointing out these things to 8the brethren, you will be a good 9servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the a10sound doctrine which you 11have been following. 7 But bhave nothing to do with 12worldly 13fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of 14godliness; 8 for 15bodily discipline is only of little profit, but 16godliness is profitable for all things, since it 17holds promise for the 18present life and also for the life to come. 9 19It is a trustworthy statement deserving full acceptance. 10 For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed 20our hope on 21the living God, who is 22the Savior of all men, especially of believers. 11 c23Prescribe and teach these things. 12 24Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, 25love, faith and purity, show yourself 26an example dof those who believe. 13 27Until I come, give attention to the public 28reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching.
