1 Timothy 4:

Many will leave the faith of God in Christ for worldly teaching from lying demons and deceiving spirit (for the sake of money, job, promotion, power, or influence).  They will forbid people from getting married (radical feminism) and ban the eating of certain foods (fanatics of weight loss) which are to be eaten to glorify God in truth with thanksgiving. All natural food made by God is good.  You will be a great minister of Christ if you can confidently share these truth in faith and in good teaching with the people.  Physical training is good, but it is nothing compared to godliness which rewards you now and in eternal life.  Do not be ashamed of your age, but represent God diligently in speech, lifestyle, love, faith, and purity.  Never neglect you spiritual gifts in God and devote yourselves to the public reading, teaching, and preaching of the Gospel of God.  Observe your lifestyle and doctrine closely to make sure it is filled with God's Spirit and God's expectations in faith in Jesus Christ.       

1 Timothy 5:

Treat old people with respect.  Treat older men like your father, women as mothers, as well as young men and women as siblings with purity.  Always assist widows, but widows with descendants must first care for them because it pleases God.  A widow who is alone seeks God, but the one who seeks worldly pleasures is a living dead.  Anyone who does not provide for their family or relatives is worse than the godlessNo widow should be taken care of unless she is over sixty and was faithful to her husband, known for good deeds, show hospitality and good manners, as well as assists those that need helpA widow is therefore different from a single motherA young widow (like a single mother yet to be married) is then to work, marry, and contribute to the welfare of the community instead of becoming an idle slanderer or gossipSo God expects the godly under sixty years old to be married.  All workers deserve their wages and respect.  Accuse elders or others with two or three legitimate witnesses, and rebuke sin publicly to teach others otherwise.  Do nothing out of partiality or favoritism, do not share in others' sins, and drink little wine aside from water to help with health issues.  Both good deeds and sins are obvious or trail from behind, but always choose good deeds.

1 Timothy 6:

Employees are to respect their employers in order to honor God.  We are to serve believing employers in the faith even better because believers are benefiting from your services.  Beware of those that think godliness is the path for wealth.  They are interested in controversies that results in envy, meaningless talks, and frictions between people of corrupt minds.  Godliness with contentment is a blessing because we were born with no property and we are also returning to the grave with no property.  Those who intentionally seek wealth eventually fall to the worldly system away from God and are destroyed by that lifestyle.  It is the love of money (IDOLATRY - greed for self-ambition) that is the root of all evils.  Reject all this and keep your faith in Jesus and always confess your faith in the presence of many witnesses. Tell the rich not to put hope in wealth, but in God, as well as to do good deeds, share, and be generous
