Christians should adjust the way they relate to others within God's family in order to show proper care and respect for each person. This principle should shape how the church cares for widows.
After describing four marks of a good servant in vv. 6-16, Paul tells Timothy that a good servant will intentionally adjust the way he relates to others within God's family in order to show proper care and respect for each person (5:1-2). Paul then practically applies this basic principle for relationships to three different groups within the church (three "case studies"): widows (vv.3-16), elders (vv.17-25), and masters/employers (6:1-3). In this sermon we unpack the principle and how it is applied in Paul's first case study concerning showing proper care for widows within the church.
