1 Timothy 1:2; 1 Timothy 1:18; 1 Timothy 3:4; 1 Timothy 3:12; 1 Timothy 5:4
To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord .
This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you fight the good fight,
He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity
Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households.
but if any widow has children or grandchildren, they must first learn to practice piety in regard to their own family and to make some return to their parents; for this is acceptable in the sight of God.
