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.

Fall By Calamity

The righteous died at younger age but the unrighteous are hard to fall. I often heard this saying when I was still young from folks in our locality that one survived in an accident because he is a bad guy and one did not because he is good & kind - with matching shaking of the head.

But reading the Scriptures proved otherwise.

Proverbs 24:16 For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity.

Certainly, people judged on the outside of a man compared to God who search the heart and mind of every man.

Jeremiah 17:9-10 “ The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

Knowing therefore that for being righteous, one may fall seven times and rise again, can we not persevere to become such & not fall by calamity?
