Galatians 6:6 “Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.”
Galatians 6:7-10 is a very familiar passage to many believers. I am sure many have heard sermons based upon it. The main point usually centers on verse 7 which says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” To be sure, this is absolutely true. But, did you know that all of this is predicated upon verse 6? It all comes down to communication. We live in a world that has more access to and easier ways to communicate than ever before. Phone, text, email, cards, Fed-Ex, UPS, Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus, and video calls with Skype, Facetime, or Google Hangouts are just some of the main ways in which we send and receive communications. It has never been easier to stay in touch with people than now. Here, in verse 6 we are commanded that if we are taught in the Word then we should communicate to the teacher, “in all good things.”
Did you know that October is Pastor Appreciation Month? What can you do to communicate to your pastor and his family to show your appreciation for the impact they have had on your life? Over the next few weeks, take a few minutes each week to do something nice for your pastor: write him a note, buy him his favorite coffee or soda, bake him some cookies, etc. Pastors have the great responsibility of edifying the church body; and they do that through leading by example, teaching from His Word both in preaching and lessons, responding to situations properly, and living out their faith in front of you. They have the whole church’s eye upon them, and many preachers feel like they live in a glass house which is a big weight to bear. Have you grown and learned some things from your pastor? If so, strengthen and encourage him today.
In honor of Pastor Appreciation Month and my pastor, I have created this meme. Please enjoy, and feel free to share!
