Bible: 1 Tim. 4:6-16
4:6 By pointing out such things to the brothers and sisters, 1 you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, having nourished yourself on the words of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. 2 4:7 But reject those myths 3 fit only for the godless and gullible, 4 and train yourself for godliness. 4:8 For “physical exercise 5 has some value, but godliness is valuable in every way. It holds promise for the present life and for the life to come.” 4:9 This saying 6 is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance. 4:10 In fact this is why 7 we work hard and struggle, 8 because we have set our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, 9 especially of believers.
4:11 Command and teach these things. 4:12 Let no one look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in your speech, conduct, love, faithfulness, 10 and purity. 4:13 Until I come, give attention to the public reading of scripture, 11 to exhortation, to teaching. 4:14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift you have, 12 given to you and confirmed by prophetic words 13 when the elders laid hands on you. 14 4:15 Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that everyone will see your progress. 15 4:16 Be conscientious about how you live and what you teach. 16 Persevere in this, because by doing so you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.
