Study 6 From The Book of 1 Timothy Is: 1 Timothy 5:1-6:2

1.    Note Paul’s concerns for others, and his detached interest in the special conditions and needs of particular groups.  What may we here learn concerning the way to treat people?
2.    How ought the elderly, e.g., widows, normally to be cared for? Why does Paul advise against the giving of church support to younger widows?
3.    5:19-22. Of what dangers and responsibilities is Timothy here made aware? What, in principle, can I learn from these instructions for my own guidance?
Notes
1.    5:3, 17. “Honour”: probably implies financial support.
2.    5:22. ‘The laying on of hands’ refers to the setting apart of individuals for specific service, e.g., as elders.
