Bible: 1 Tim. 4:8-16
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, 6 and purity. 4:13 Until I come, give attention to the public reading of scripture, 7 to exhortation, to teaching. 4:14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift you have, 8 given to you and confirmed by prophetic words 9 when the elders laid hands on you. 10 4:15 Take pains with these things; be absorbed in them, so that everyone will see your progress. 11 4:16 Be conscientious about how you live and what you teach. 12 Persevere in this, because by doing so you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.
