Bible: 1 Timothy 5:3-8

5:3 Honor 1  widows who are truly in need. 2  5:4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, they should first learn to fulfill their duty 3  toward their own household and so repay their parents what is owed them. 4  For this is what pleases God. 5  5:5 But the widow who is truly in need, and completely on her own, 6  has set her hope on God and continues in her pleas and prayers night and day. 5:6 But the one who lives for pleasure is dead even 7  while she lives. 5:7 Reinforce 8  these commands, 9  so that they will be beyond reproach. 5:8 But if someone does not provide for his own, 10  especially his own family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
