Many pastors call this section of 1st Timothy the “Ten Commandments of Ministry” because in the space of six verses Paul commands young Timothy to do ten things. It’s interesting that Paul would select as a protégé someone wired so differently from him in temperament. Paul is an older man with a notoriously bold and assertive personality. Timothy had a low-key unassuming more laid-back temperament. Someone working with a Paul-type might have to occasionally exhort them to relax, but Paul, with reference to Timothy, had to exhort him to stand up and be more assertive.
