1 Timothy 4:11-16
11 Command and teach these things. 12 Don’t let anyone look down on
you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in
conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the
public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect
your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid
their hands on you.15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them,
so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine
closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and
your hearers.
