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.

Difficult Days

Ecclesiastes 12:1-2 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “ I have no pleasure in them”: While the sun and the light, The moon and the stars, Are not darkened, And the clouds do not return after the rain;

While we are still strong, with complete teeth & a 20/20 vision.

Ecclesiastes 12:3 In the day when the keepers of the house tremble, And the strong men bow down; When the grinders cease because they are few, And those that look through the windows grow dim;

When we still can hear, sleep soundly & can sing higher notes.

Ecclesiastes 12:4 When the doors are shut in the streets, And the sound of grinding is low; When one rises up at the sound of a bird, And all the daughters of music are brought low.

When we are not afraid to do anything, our hair is still black, can carry a load on a shoulder & still sexually active.

Ecclesiastes 12:5 Also they are afraid of height, And of terrors in the way; When the almond tree blossoms, The grasshopper is a burden, And desire fails. For man goes to his eternal home, And the mourners go about the streets.

The difficult day is: when you are still young, you have no pleasure in doing things that pertains to God.

The more difficult day is: When you are already old, still, you have no pleasure:

* Attending the fellowship where boarding a transport is a burden.

* Joining the choir where all members are the youth.

* Bow down your knees where you can hardly stand after the prayer.

* Share in the collection where you are jobless.

* Going to places where church missions (charitable, medical) are conducted.

For if you can do these things with pleasure, truly you have remembered your Creator, before the difficult days come.
