Overseer *1 Tim. 3:1-7

Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. 2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full[a] respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?) 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.
Lord, raise up godly men and women who come under Your requirements for leadership – not only for the church, but in our government as well. Remove corrupt leadership and replace with people who love You, Lord and adhere to Your commands with love and justice.


To write a song
How could I go wrong!
It would be so fun
I think I’ve already written one
or maybe two or three
I’ll just have to wait and see.
