    hmm.  i think i know what you mean. 
    but it’s not “everyone.”  some listen to the words of a wise teacher…
    “…whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name, welcomes me.” – mt. 18.5
    so…
    “…set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, & in purity.”  – the rest of 1Tim 4.12
    and, what’s more, personally…
    “in everything set them an example by doing what is good.  In your teaching show integrity, seriousness, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.” – Titus 2.7-8
    just sayin…

    Yeah, and they will have contempt for you. Some will even try to kill you if you do your job well enough.
