1 Timothy 5

Click For Today’s Audio


Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.

– 1 Timothy 5:17

Both Timothy and Titus were set to the task of overseeing churches, and those leading them. It was their assignment to set in place overseeing elders and leaders for the scattered gatherings of Christians over which they pastored. Therefore both Timothy and Titus are given instructions about the qualifications and duties of such leaders. And they were also to instill within the minds of those being led by such elders to honor the position and authority granted by God to them.
