10 Characteristics of a Man Worthy of Your Love!


1 Timothy 3:1-7 ERV

1 It is a true statement that anyone whose goal is to serve as an elder has his heart set on a good work. 2 An elder must be such a good man that no one can rightly criticize him. He must be faithful to his wife.3:2 faithful to his wife Literally, “a man of one woman.” He must have self-control and be wise. He must be respected by others. He must be ready to help people by welcoming them into his home. He must be a good teacher. 3 He must not drink too much, and he must not be someone who likes to fight. He must be gentle and peaceful. He must not be someone who loves money. 4 He must be a good leader of his own family. This means that his children obey him with full respect. 5If a man does not know how to lead his own family, he will not be able to take care of God’s church.

6 An elder must not be a new believer. It might make him too proud of himself. Then he would be condemned for his pride the same as the devil was. 7 An elder must also have the respect of people who are not part of the church. Then he will not be criticized by others and be caught in the devil’s trap.
