 The Apostle guards against this abuse of Christian love, and of the just intimacy and confidence which ought to exist between brethren; but which, on the contrary, was a motive for the servant to render all honor to his master, by treating him with more love and with the same respect. (1 Timothy 6 by J.N. Darby)
 Any lack in this proper respect would be an attempt on the part of the slave to use Christianity to raise his social position, thus seeking his own worldly advantage. In the Assembly the slave and the Master were on common ground, equal before the Lord. There, indeed, the slave might by reason of his spirituality, or gift, be more prominent than his earthly master. (Warnings Against Pride of the Flesh and Instruction in Piety by H. Smith)

WK Translation Notes

[latter part]: the close of 2 should be, "they that partake in (or profit by) the good service are believing and beloved." (Bible Treasury 14:30)
^ These: But it seems a strange division which severs that which follows from the foregoing, by taking "These things teach and exhort," either as the beginning of a new paragraph, like Green, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Webster and Wilkinson, Westcott and Hort, Bengel, Matthaei, or as the end of the previous one, like Ellicott and the Revised Version. It is better with Alford, Bloomfield, et al., to regard this as an unbroken context; and the more as the denunciatory warning which now commences stands in more evident contrariety to the exhortation just concluded. (Exp. of the Two Epist. to Timothy, p.126)
