 Very blessedly this Scripture shows how much a godly woman can do that is pleasing to God and in helping the Lord's people. The omissions, however, are as striking as the good works that are enumerated. (Warnings Against Worldliness and Instruction in Piety by H. Smith)
 Then her general character in respect of reputable works is insisted on. Rearing of children (not necessarily her own) is not forgotten; as well as the exercise of hospitality to strangers. Even this alone would not bear the christian stamp; and the apostle adds that lowly act, so consecrated to deeper meaning by our Lord Himself in John 13-washing saints' feet (On 1 Timothy 5:9-16 by W. Kelly)
 When cared for, they would not assuredly cease to care for others: godly and gracious habits do not so change; and the assembly was not to neglect but honor widows of such a sort. (On 1 Timothy 5:9-16 by W. Kelly)
