In Chapter 5 of Paul's first letter to Timothy, the apostle addresses certain continuing problems in the church at Ephesus. Timothy will have to deal with various classes and people in the congregation; he will have to face problems of discipline -- even discipline of elders, as we will see in the latter half of this chapter.

The apostle opens this section with a general word about how to look at people. Verse 1:

How To View Others  ( 1 Timothy 5:1-16 )  Daily Devotion

In this section from First Timothy 5 the Apostle Paul again turns to admonitions and instructions concerning the elders of a church.
