1 Timothy 3:1-7

He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity.

1 Timothy 3:1-7
1
The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task.
2
Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,
3
not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.
4
He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive,
5
for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church?
6
He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil.
7
Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.
