7And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
8But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
9Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,
10Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.
11But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
12Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
13And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
14I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15For some are already turned aside after Satan.
16If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
17Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
19Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
20Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
21I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.Next Verse 22
Holy without reward,
Holy so as not to offend you,
Holy to better serve others.
that we remember and celebrate the memory of all the Saints,
Help me to get closer to You.
I ask you to ask the Spirit,
Give me the gifts I need to be better.
Not because I deserve something,
But for my praise to come to You, fuller.
Lord, forgive me,
For my faults and sins,
For everything I could have done and did not do,
For everything that could have served and not served,
For all that I have wasted.
Give me your Blessing so that the rest of my life,
Be Faithful and Charitable,
Light of Yours and Server of All,
according to You ask me at every moment.
Thank you Lord for Your Mercy with me.
