The Compassionate Church

1.  Our ministry of correction must be gracious.

1 Timothy 5:1-2

 

A.  Correct an older man as if he were your father.

B.  Correct a younger man as if he were your brother.

C.  Correct an older woman as if she were your mother.

D.  Correct a younger woman as if she were your sister.

 

2.  Our ministry of compassion must be appropriate.

1 Timothy 5:3-16; James 1:27

A.  We should financially support widows who have a genuine need and are godly.  1 Timothy 5:3-8, 16

B.  We should enlist for ministry service widows who are over sixty years old, were faithful to their husbands and are godly.  1 Timothy 5:9-10

C.  We should not enlist younger widows for ministry service.  1 Timothy 5:11-15

Amen
