Praying from 1 Timothy 5:1 relating to Respect, Brotherhood, Exhortation.

Dear Lord, please help me to remember to treat older men with respect and honor, not rebuking them but exhorting them as I would my own father. And may I treat younger men as brothers, with love and encouragement. Help me to see all men as your children and to treat them with the kindness and compassion that you have shown me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Verse: Don’t rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father; the younger men as brothers;
1 Timothy 5:1

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader not to rebuke an older man, but to exhort him as a father, and to treat younger men as brothers.
