  Qualifications for Deacons

 8Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued,[a] not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain.
 9They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.
10And let them also be tested first; then let them serve as deacons if they prove themselves blameless.
11Their wives likewise[b] must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things.
12Let deacons each be the husband of one wife, managing their children and their own households well.
13For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus. 


a.    1 Timothy 3:8 Or devious in speech
b.    1 Timothy 3:11 Or Wives likewise, or Women likewise
