High Standards

Today's reading: 1 Timothy 3:1-16

Paul lays out standards and criterions for those who hold, or want to hold, a position of leadership within the church in 1 Timothy 3. As Paul starts, he notes how a position of this nature is a "noble task," and then launches into quite a long list of important and vital qualities. While not all of us are in church leadership positions, or being in church leadership may not be on our current "aspire to do list," these qualities are things we should aim to possess as followers of Christ. I found myself thinking "Yes. I want to be like that." over and over as I read down through these lists. The qualities of being self-controlled and hospitable stood out me because of how both directly impact what other people see and how I am perceived as a follower of Christ. As I finished reading, I asked God to help me grow even stronger in these two critical areas.

What did God impress on your heart from this passage about how He desires us to live? Was there a particular standard or quality (or perhaps two or three) that stood out to you, and why? Tami
