Bible
1 Timothy 3:1-7

1 Timothy
3:1 Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task.
3:2 Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,
3:3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.
3:4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect.
3:5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)
3:6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil.
3:7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.
