Conclusion: The minister of Messiah Jesus is to preach not only the general duties of all, but the duties of particular relations, that believers may live lives that will truly witness for Christ wherever they are. He is to endeavor after Godliness at all times himself, not making his ministry merely a trade, but a calling wherein he is content with what God allots him, fighting the fight of faith and looking for the coming of our Lord, when he shall be abundantly rewarded.
There seems to be a recurring theme in 1st Timothy that as believers we are to remain steadfast to that which God has called us. Being diligent has rewards both here in this life and also the one to come. Do not allow yourself to get caught up in useless wrangling about things that really are not of eternal value. Some issues can seem to be so important that they distract us from the God given objective of living quiet and gentle lives, being at peace as much as is possible with others, looking for opportunities to witness of our faith in Messiah, and going about the assignment of discipling those God brings into our lives. In this, there is great reward.
