14 Jan Is Your Church a Family or an Orphanage?
Dhati Lewis discusses the Church being a family, not an orphanage and explains the difference between the two.
1 Timothy 3: 1-5 says, “Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)”
