Give a bonus to leaders who do a good job, especially the ones who work hard at preaching and teaching. -1 Timothy 5:17 (MSG)
God knows it feels to be unappreciated. So did the Apostle Paul and so he spoke often to churches about the importance of acknowledging those who commit their lives to building the Kingdom of God. We all need “a pat on the back”, a word of encouragement, and a “thank you” for all those things that no one even knows about.
Perhaps the bonus we can give our Pastor is our daily prayer support and using our gifts to lighten his load. As we enter a season of gratefulness, may we give thanks for our Pastor.
