Wallpaper: The Character of Godliness

Scriptures: 1 Timothy 3:1-7
by Jacob Abshire on January 1, 2023

God wants godly character to permeate our lives. It is for our good and his glory. For this purpose, He has described the kind of person we ought to be. In 1 Timothy 3:1-7, we find one of those lists. It is the qualifications of a pastor, who naturally serves as an instructor and example to the church he leads. Therefore, these qualities are for all who follow Christ. Let this wallpaper design remind you that you must build the character of godliness.

“The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.”
