1 Timothy 5

Paul addresses two important areas of conflict in the church of Ephesus. The Church is to care deeply for those that are struggling or vulnerable, in this case widows. But there should be wise standards of our care and generosity. As well, the integrity and character of leaders is essential. So do not raise them up to responsibility too quickly and when conflict happens handle it in an orderly way. Why? So the church can really point people to Jesus!
