1 Timothy 5:17

In continuation of our topic for this week, our memory verse for today is in 1 Timothy 5:17. The Bible says "Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine."

Although in this verse, it is not explicitly stated that the double honor only pertains to pastors, but in the phrase "they who labour in the word and doctrine," we can surely say that the one who is counted worthy for double honour is our pastors. Because they are the one who really labour in the word and doctrine. They diligently study the Word of God to make sure that they do not distort the Message of God and feed us with substantial food for our spirit.
I personally believe that we should give due respect to our pastor for they watch for our soul. They are our spiritual father here on earth. They care for us even though they are not related to them. They pray for us and they definitely love us as brethren in Christ. Is this not enough reason to give them the double honor?
May God give us the grace to continue to love our pastors and honor them as the Word of God instructed us to do.
