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.

All Things That You Desire

God does not approve the wrong conduct of men, but that he had kind feelings toward them, or was "earnestly desirous" of their happiness.

God hates wickedness, but he still desires the Happiness of those who are sinful. "He hates the sin, but loves the repentant sinner." 

A parent may love his child and desire his welfare, and yet be strongly opposed to the wrong conduct of that child. When we approve the evil conduct of another, this is blind love unaware of the danger that lies ahead; when we desire simply their happiness, this is an act of kindness.
Jn 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If I did not ask God to give his son for my sins and yet he did, my own and personal desire therefore is nothing compared to what has given. Though he knows what is best for us we should still pray and ask.
Phil 4:6  Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
 Ask therefore and believe that we already received it.
Mt 21:22  And all things whatever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Mk 11:24  Therefore I say to you, Whatever things ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Instead of desiring what others have, envy others because we don't have, the scripture commanded us to ask. 
Jas 4:2  Ye lust and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
But remember, ask only what you need and not just to satisfy the lust of the flesh.
Jas 4:3  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Because the Lord sees the way of the upright and know the end of the sinner which is destruction.
Prov 3:33  The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
