Daily Verse Reading – 1 Timothy 5:3-10

3 Honor widows that are widows indeed. 4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren,1ti5 let them learn first to show piety at home and to repay their parents. For this is good and acceptable before God. 5 Now she who is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusts in God, and continues in supplications and prayers night and day. 6 But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives. 7 And these things command, that they may be blameless. 8 But if any do not care for their own, and especially for those of their own house, they have denied the faith and are worse than unbelievers.

9 Do not let a widow be counted unless she is over sixty years old, has been the wife of one man, 10 is well attested in good works, if she has brought up children, has lodged strangers, has washed the saints’ feet, has relieved the afflicted, and has diligently followed every good work.
