For those who serve
« on: May 06, 2011, 12:01:49 PM »
Read Romans 13;1-7
1 Timothy 5;17 says Let thge elders who rule well be conuted worthy of double honour,especially thgose who labour in the word and doctrine.
Dave Branon writes;When my son Steve walks into aroom,he often gets immediate respect.People wantyto shake his hand.They smile ,they congratulate him.They thank him.
I t happens at church.It happens at restaurants.It happens where ever he goes-as long as he is wearing his uniform of the United States Navy.
While in the uniform,Steve gets instant respect because everyone knows he is serving.He has given up many personal freedoms and desires so that he can serve his country.
People respect service.We honour the police who serve.We pay homage to military personnel who serve.But do we give the same honour to those who are in an even greater service-service to God?Do we show respect to our pastors,missioneries,and sunday school teachers?
Scripture tell us to give honour to whom honour is due (ROM 13;7),Specifically it tells us that double honour goes tom those who direct the affairs of the church through teaching and preaching(1Tim 5;17).
Instead of criticizing our pastors,teachers or spiritual leaders,let others hear your words of gratitude and praise for their service.Hold them up in prayer.God's servant deserve our respect and honour
PUTTING INTO PRACTICE
1.Send card or note of appreciation to your pastor
2.Thank you teacher for a lesson that helped up.
3.Ask your teachers how you can pray for them.
NB;We honour God when we honour our leaders

Not necessarily a preacher but just a reminder of neglect.
