Bible: 1 Timothy 3:4-7

3:4 He must manage his own household well and keep his children in control without losing his dignity. 1  3:5 But if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for the church of God? 3:6 He must not be a recent convert or he may become arrogant 2  and fall into the punishment that the devil will exact. 3  3:7 And he must be well thought of by 4  those outside the faith, 5  so that he may not fall into disgrace and be caught by the devil’s trap. 6
