Give Thanks ~ Nov. 1

I'm thankful for godly leaders in my church--men and women who "...diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction..." (1 Thess. 5:12)

I strive to, "esteem them very highly in love because of their work [and] Live in peace with one another." (1 Thess. 5:13)

Because they, "admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, [and are] patient with all men." (1 Thess. 5:14)

For the first time ever in my Christian life, my family is blessed to attend a church where the practice of Biblical eldership and deacons exists. It truly is a blessing for which to be thankful.

Such a great reason to be thankful. We have diligent leaders in our church also who truly seek our best interest. Thanks for provoking the thought for me.
