In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience.

– 1 Timothy 3:8-9 (NIV)

Today’s commentary

Leadership in the church demands the ability to stay clear of the temptation to use their position for personal gain. Our need for affirmation must come from our standing in Christ, not from a title in the church. If you are a deacon, an elder, or any other position, take care with how you handle the respect that comes with that high calling. There is a great need for clear leadership that have a clear conscience.
