1 Timothy 3:14-16
V 15 …you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God
Ever thought how we should behave as members of the family of God. That’s what Paul is talking about here; how we should act within the family of God not just inside the church building. He will focus the next part of his letter telling us how we should treat each other. I think that we sometimes forget that our church family is the soft place we can fall. It’s the place where others will understand the decisions you make based on God’s leading that the world finds crazy. It’s the people who should support you, love you, and sometimes love you enough to tell you when you are wrong. How we conduct ourselves here is very important since this is the picture of the church that the world sees. We wouldn’t want them to see a group of people constantly squabbling full of back-stabbing lying people who barely tolerate each other and are constantly vying for power. That’s not different than anything they see in the world. How are we doing with this so far?
