In setting forth the qualification of household management, Paul makes an argument for it. Moving from the lesser to the greater, the apostle makes the claim that if a man cannot manage his own house well then he certainly is not prepared to exercise spiritual rule over many households. The particular aspect of household rule which distinguishes a man for eldership is the care of his children, leading them into submission by means of dignity.

1 Timothy 3:4-5

He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity. but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?
