And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love!
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 (The Message)
We all have a variety of opinions on how to treat our pastors. Our ideas have been influenced by what we have been taught, observed in churches, watched in our parents, etc. But what does the Bible say about how to treat our spiritual leaders? God sets a very high standard in this passage in 1 Thessalonians 5.
Will you accept God’s challenge to honor your pastor and overwhelm them with appreciation and love?
