Daily Devotion

24 November 

12 We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13, ESV)

In the Army, we are accustomed to having authority over us and to respect those leaders who work hard on our behalf. But I wonder if we consider the same things within the confines of the church. Do we have for the chaplain, caring for our spiritual needs, the same respect as a hard-working in NCO? Please regard your spiritual leader, especially by praying continually for him.

Prayer: Lord, give me opportunities to express gratitude to my leaders.
