1 Timothy 5:17-20 – 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 says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.” 19 Do not receive an accusation against an elder except from two or three witnesses. 20 Those who are sinning rebuke in the presence of all, that the rest also may fear.
Never assume that someone who is older is no longer needed or wanted. There is great wisdom that comes from experience that only comes from age. As Paul told Timothy, we should always honor the elders, but more importantly, we should always learn from them.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
