How important is a harmonious home life in ministry? Paul thinks it's a non-negotiable: "An elder must be a man whose life cannot be spoken against. He must be faithful to his wife ... He must manage his own family well ... For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God's Church?" (1 Tim. 3:2, 4-5; also see Titus 1:6-9)
