The Importance of Mentors Part 6

They manage themselves and others very well.
“1 This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the
position of a bishop, he desires a good work. 2 A
bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one
wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior,
hospitable, able to teach; 3 not given to wine, not violent,
not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome,
not covetous; 4 one who rules his own house
well, having his children in submission with all
reverence 5 (for if a man does not know how to rule
his own house, how will he take care of the church
of God?); 6 not a novice, lest being puffed up with
pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good testimony among
those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and
the snare of the devil.” (1st Timothy 3:1-7)
