Widow Speak

March 20, 2022 Preacher: Caleb Bunch Series: 1 Timothy

Topic: Widows Scripture: 1 Timothy 5:1-16

  1. Every Christian needs to rebuke sin among the Church body
    • Correct older by treating them as parents
    • Correct younger by treating them as siblings
    • Correct non husband/wife as brother/sister in Christ
  2. Which widows qualifies financial assitance? Church to deploy practical help wisely and not to be burdened
    • Truly alone without family and community support
    • Wealthy women do not qualify
    • Women pursue excess desires do not qualify as they are spiritually dead, they are interested in self and worldly things
  3. Widows enrolled in the ministry and commit self to serve the Church
    • To be a servant in Christ, not to desire wealth
    • Without occuping themself serving others, idlers sins

Application

  • God cares about the widows and so should you
  • Giving money is not always helpful spiritually
  • The gospel is of first importance. Physical needs are temporal, spiritual needs are eternal
