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.

First Born

The word of God is so powerful that before things or event happen, it was foretold beforehand.

Is 42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Like the case of Jacob and Esau in their struggle as the first born son of Isaac and his wife Rebekah.

Gen 25:21 And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

Gen 25:22 And the children struggled together within her: and she said, If it is so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD.

Gen 25:23 And the LORD said to her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels: and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.

Gen 25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

Gen 25:25 And the first was born red, all over like a hairy garment: and they called his name Esau.

Gen 25:26 And after that his brother was born, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.

Note that Jacob took his brother Esau by the heel while inside the womb. Their struggle continued until later, Esau sold his birth-right to Jacob for a bread and pottage of lentiles.

Gen 25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he ate and drank, and rose and went his way: thus Esau despised his birth-right.

The interesting miracle that we should note is the prophecy that Esau shall serve Jacob. How it will be carried out or how it will happen was not clearly stated but one thing is very clear, it will surely happen and is destined to happen whether we like it or not.
