1 TIMOTHY 5:1-2

5 Never speak harshly to an older man,[a] but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. 2 Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.


In this passage, Paul is instructing his young disciple on how to treat and honor those above him, those beside him, and those below him


Q: Paul gives specific instructions on how Timothy is to treat those around him, why?

Q: It’s easy for us to find examples of people around us refusing to give honor to their fellow man. What effect does this have on those they interact with? How is it different from those that honor their fellow man?

Q: Who do you need to learn honor today? Your boss? Your spouse? Your kids? How can you best appeal to them? How can you represent yourself to them in a way that will honor the name of Jesus?
