Verse of the Day: Provide For Your Teachers

June 27, 2007


6 Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them.

Galatians 6:6 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

Paul says that students should take care of the material needs of their teachers (1 Corinthians 9:7-12). It is easy to receive the benefit of good Bible teaching and then to take our spiritual leaders for granted, ignoring their financial and physical needs. We should care for our teachers, not grudgingly or reluctantly, but with a generous spirit, showing honor and appreciation for all they have done (1 Timothy 5:17, 18).

From the Nelson Study Bible:

One important way to bear other believers’ burdens is to share in all good things, including financial support, with one who teaches God’s word. After all, teacher and preachers work hard in their ministry (see 1 Tim. 5:17).
