The Family Life of an Elder

A great way to determine how a man will perform in the office of elder is to look at how he is performing in the role of father and husband. Paul told Timothy that any man seeking the eldership "must manage his own household well" (1 Tim 3:5). This management works itself out both in his marriage and in the raising of his children. The fact is that it is foolish to think that a man will be a better elder than he is a father and husband.
