…must be blameless …temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, …gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; …rules… house well; having his children in submission with all reverence, not a novice, …[not] puffed up with pride… have a good testimony [with outsiders]… not double-tongued… pure conscience… wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, [and] faithful in all things.
1 Timothy 3
These are the qualities I desire to have; whether I’m in a leadership position or not.
Lord, thank You for Your constant teaching, training, and correcting. I truly desire to be a great and precious blessing to You. In Jesus name I ask You to continue to lead and guide my steps – keep me victorious over the enemy’s snares! Amen!
