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.

Left And Right

Matthew 6:3 But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

Reading this verse, I said, it is very impossible that the right hand would not know what the left hand was doing. Wonder why Jesus taught us this way while He Himself knows even a slight touch of his clothes.

Mark 5: 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

Luke 8:46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”

I consider Matthew 6:3 as a solid food since it can not be digested by babes in faith.

Hebrews 5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Driving for example is a very good example of what I want to convey.

The senses of a new driver does not work well in the beginning but will work well in the long run. Eyes front, ears listening, left hand on the wheel, the right hand on shifting gear, left foot on clutch, right foot on accelerator and brake - Making them all busy is to know not what the others are doing for they work independently. This is the meaning of senses exercised mentioned in Hebrews 5:14.

Clearly, the left hand knows what the right hand is doing only when the left hand is not busy and not doing anything.
