We are told in Scripture to honor those worthy of honor. Scripture specifically mentions elders, telling us, “Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching” (1 Timothy 5:17). Who are those laboring week after week in your church body that deserve special honor? Consider taking special note in telling them that you notice their hard work and appreciate what they are doing for you and others.
