Supporting The Teacher

“Don’t you realize that those who work in the temple get their meals from the offerings brought to the temple? And those who serve at the alter get a share of the sacrificial offerings. In the same way, the Lord ordered that those who preach the Good News should be supported by those who benefit from it.” (NLT, 1 Corinthians 9:13-14)

Are we supporting the person who is delivering us God’s Word and helping us to understand it? If they are not supported by the hearers, there will arise a distraction in their lives which will force them to divide up their time with preparing the message, spending quality time with the Lord, and seeking out labor which produces income. Please, I implore you, do everything you can to support all of the deliverers of the Good News!
