1st Thess. 5:12-13 says: “Now we ask you, brother and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.”
The work of the church pastors includes physical (labor work plus care giving) and mental (instructions and guidance) all can be very demanding. Remember, they represent the Kingdom of Heaven. The Lord is asking us to hold them in the highest regard and that is through love. This way we will be able to obey them so the church can live the “One body” experience. Let us help them to peacefully represent the greatest Kingdom ever.
