"Pastoral Care"  1 Timothy 5:1-2

Paul ends his letter to Timothy with instructions on the place in ministry for how the pastor is to care for his church.  In this specific text Paul lets Timothy know just how he is to handle those in the church.  It is noted that in all of his relationships he is first of all, to treat each with love and respect and also look at each person as if they were a family member.  It is true the church is one big family with Christ as the head and each of us part of His body.  Let us be encouraged as we see our fellowship as a family, a family that loves and serves our Lord Jesus Christ.
