Honor those who serve God

"Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine." (1 Tim 5:17)

To honor is not only to respect those who teach the word of God and mentor you spiritually, but also materially support them with the money you have in your pocket or bank account (Gal 6:6; Mark 7:10-13). When you do that, the men and women of God will be really encouraged to minister the word of God still more effectively because you have made them to effectively focus on God rather than their daily needs.

We honor God when we honor those who serve God.
