The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.” 1 Timothy 5:17-18

Observations

Prayer

Father, I want to express thanks for the faithful servants who have ministered to me. I am grateful for the sermons preached and lessons taught. I am thankful for the examples they have been to me. I pray for those who walk in the office of leadership. Give them wisdom, favor and anointing. Keep them strong in faith and powerful in love. Help me to be the leaders you want me to be. Help me to be a blessing to others. Amen1 Amen! Amen!
