1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

The Indolent Faithful

This picture reminds me of the following passage from the Bible:

2 Corinthians 8:13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:

2 Corinthians 8:14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:

2 Corinthians 8:15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

This is applicable, not only within but also outside of the Church, to our family & country.

The reason why the rich are ordered to be charitable, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

1 Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

Let us not therefore be idle in faith and be persistent in spirit serving the Lord.

Romans 12:11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

The picture is funny, isn't it?

But some of us are like that, including myself. We are not inquisitive of the things that happens around us. Once in a while, we are an indolent faithful.
