Bible: 1 Tim 4:6-13

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.
