November 14 – Honor God’s Servants By Providing For Their Needs

God’s servants hold a special place in God’s mind, and we should consider them special also. Paul explained the necessity of catering for the needs of God’s servants and said,

“Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar? Even so the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should live from the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:13-14).

Lesson:

Courtesy demands that we take good care of God’s servants that labor over our souls. God’s servants pray and fast on our behalves. They also seek God’s face to properly feed us with the word of God – which is the bread of life. God’s servants represent God, and we should respect them. The rule of thumb indicates that whatever honor we give God’s servant is what we technically give to God himself! Therefore, we believers should utilize every opportunity that we have to minister into the lives of spiritual leaders that we have on our radar.

Prayer:

Dear God, I understand that gospel ministers are your ambassadors on earth; therefore, give me the grace to honor them. Empower me to do whatever thing I have in the capacity to minister to their needs, and let me be a source of courage to their families. I also pray that you give all your servants peace and joy so that they can continue to do your good works for humanity, and for your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
