1 Timothy 3 - Key

v1

This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

Even for people who aren't overseers right now, these would be good things for all of us to work on.

Application

v2
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

It says a bishop must be ... given to hospitality.... I'll work on being hospitable, even to people I don't know very well, by being willing to strike up friendly conversations that might even lead to the gospel.
