TOPIC: Double Honour (DCLM Daily Manna 15 March 2024)

KEY VERSE: “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine” (1 Timothy 5:17).

TEXT: 1 Timothy 5:17-25 (KJV)

17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.

18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And the laborer is worthy of his reward.

19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

21 I charge thee before God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

22 Do not suddenly lay hands on any man, nor participate in other men’s sins; keep yourself pure.

23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.

24 Some men’s sins are open before judgment, and some men follow after.

25 Likewise, the good works of some are manifest beforehand, and they that are otherwise cannot be hidden.

DCLM Daily Manna For Today MESSAGE:

Corporate industries, especially the blue chips, understand the power of appropriate remuneration for workers. Labor unions fight for wage increases regularly to ensure their members earn living wages that make them happy. Workers are highly motivated and perform more when they are well remunerated. Salaries, wages, bonuses, commissions, fringe benefits, promotions, and awards denote various reward levels in the labor field.

The culture of remuneration in kind is brought into Apostle Paul’s instruction to Timothy in today’s passage. He said that church leaders who perform well are worthy of double honor. In saying this, Paul was not merely expressing his opinion but a principle of Christ that the laborer deserves his wages (Luke 10:7).

The double honor for excelling workers can be commendation, respect, financial support, promotion, and higher responsibility. Part of the double honor for excelling leaders is that frivolous, unsubstantiated allegations must not be entertained against them. This does not prevent them from being investigated and disciplined if they sin. However, church members should esteem such leaders and provoke them to do more.

Conferment of double honour on deserving workers, if not well managed, can allow preferential treatment and become counterproductive. To avoid this, the apostle warns against partiality or treating some people without severe rebuke and discipline when they sin. All who deserve open rebuke should not be spared, whether workers or members. There should be a balance between double honor for excellence and open rebuke for infractions in the church.

No one can receive honor who never gave one—Our needs if we trust Him.
