1 Timothy 4:11-1 Timothy 5:2 - Instructions For Ministry

11 These things command and teach. 12 Let no one despise thy youth; but be a pattern to them that believe, in word, in behaviour, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give thyself to reading, to exhortation, to teaching. 14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. 15 Meditate on these things; be wholly in them, that thy profiting may appear in all things. 16 Take heed to thyself and to thy teaching: continue in them, for in so doing thou shalt save both thyself and them that hear thee.

1 Rebuke not an elder, but exhort him as a father, the younger men as brethren; 2 The elder women as mothers, the younger as sisters, with all purity.
