Summary of 1st Timothy 1. Jesus Christ is our hope. Do not give heed to fables and endless genealogies rather than godly edifying which is in faith. The law is good, if a man use it lawfully. The law is not made for a righteous man. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the chief. For this cause I obtained mercy.

See below for Biblical advice and commentary concerning 1st Timothy 2.
Summary of 1st Timothy 3. A man who desires to be a bishop desires a good work. A bishop must be blameless. One who rules his own house.

See below for Biblical advice and commentary concerning 1st Timothy 3.
Summary of 1st Timothy 4. In the latter times some shall depart from the faith. Have the brethren remember these things so that you shall be a good minister of Jesus Christ.

Take heed unto the doctrine for in doing this both you and those that hear will be saved.
Summary of 1st Timothy 5. Do not rebuke your elders. Widows need to trust God and not to live in lust. If any not provide for their own, denies their faith. Diligently do good works and do not cast off your first faith. Do not idle, nor be tattlers, nor be busybodies. Young women should marry, bear children, and guide the house. Let the elders that rule well be doubled honored.
Summary of 1st Timothy 6. 1st Timothy 6 tells us to be faithful and to honor God by serving others as Jesus has taught us. Be wary of anyone that teaches contrary to Jesus' doctrine.

1 Timothy 2:15. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 2:15, “... continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety”. This is the Christian way to have self-control.

This is the way that God desires for us to live, and He gives us the means to have self-control.
