  1 Timothy
Edgar Goodspeed: The Epistles to Timothy and Titus
1 Timothy is one of the three epistles known collectively as the pastorals (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus).
The actual task of Timothy and Titus consists rather in preserving the correct teaching which they received from Paul and passing it on to their pupils (I Tim 1:11; 6:20; II Tim 1:14; 2:2).

 USCCB - NAB - 1 Timothy 6
1 Tim 6:6 is rather obscure and is interpreted, and therefore translated, variously.
[11-16] Timothy's position demands total dedication to God and faultless witness to Christ (1 Tim 6:11-14) operating from an awareness, through faith, of the coming revelation in Jesus of the invisible God (1 Tim 6:15-16).
Thus would be explained the emphasis upon Christ's being the one mediator (as in 1 Tim 2:5).

 Matthew Henry Commentary - 1 Timothy - Preface
Timothy and Titus were evangelists, an inferior order to the apostles, as appears by Eph.
Timothy was first converted by Paul, and therefore he calls him his own son in the faith: we read of his conversion, Acts 16:3.
The scope of these two epistles is to direct Timothy how to discharge his duty as an evangelist at Ephesus, where he now was, and where Paul ordered him for some time to reside, to perfect the good work which he had begun there.

 24. 1 Timothy 5:17: Worthy of Double Honor
We must remember that the context in Timothy relates to discipline, while the context of First Corinthians 9 relates to being worthy of the honor of receiving some sustenance (which he refused).
Since Timothy accompanied Paul from a very young age, it is very likely that Paul became a surrogate father to Timothy and taught him the highly-important trade of tent-making.
Since Timothy was among "them that were with me" in Acts 20:31-35, he witnessed firsthand how Paul worked night and day for three years at tent-making while not asking the church at Ephesus for money or food.

 Timothy, First Epistle to (WebBible Encyclopedia) - ChristianAnswers.Net
Paul in this epistle speaks of himself as having left Ephesus for Macedonia (1:3), and hence not Laodicea, as mentioned in the subscription; but probably Philippi, or some other city in that region, was the place where this epistle was written.
During the interval between his first and second imprisonments he probably visited the scenes of his former labors in Greece and Asia, and then found his way into Macedonia, whence he wrote this letter to Timothy, whom he had left behind in Ephesus.
The epistle consists mainly, (1) of counsels to Timothy regarding the worship and organization of the Church, and the responsibilities resting on its several members; and (2) of exhortation to faithfulness in maintaining the truth amid surrounding errors.
