22 Nov 1 Timothy 5:17

17 The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.

The phrase “those who rule well” can also be translated as “good leaders”. The Bible tells us to give respect to those who work hard in leading the church through preaching and teaching. We should honor our pastors for the calling they have on their lives, for the sacrifices they make, and the vulnerability they show on a weekly basis.
