  Words of Wisdom  

For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.   Acts 1:20 

Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
Grace be unto you, and peace, from  God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.   Philippians 1:1, 2 

This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of  God?)
Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the  devil.   1 Timothy 3:1-6 

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of  God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.   Titus 1:7-9 

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.   1 Peter 2:25
