1Timothy 5:1-6:2

  1. Note Paul’s concern for others, and his detached interest in the special conditions and needs of particular groups.
    What can we learn here concerning the way to treat people?
  2. How ought the elderly, e.g., widows, normally to be cared for?
    Why does Paul advise against the given of Church support to younger widows?
  3. 5:19-22. Of what dangers and responsibilities is Timothy made aware here?
    What, in principle, can I learn from these instructions for my own guidance?
