This book concerns the loving care that churches should exercise toward their pastors, and elders. The financial support of the ministry is a recurring theme in every congregation, just as salaries, and wages are recurring themes in every household. Churches are to love, and care for their God-called men. According to the Bible, it is the pattern that the Lord "ordained" for His church. In this book, you are going to meet some very interesting people. You are going to meet the soldier, the vinedresser, the shepherd, the farmer, some priests-even a cow (an ox in that day). All of these biblical characters will be used by the Apostle in a most powerful way to describe God's men who serve His church so faithfully. You will even meet the hireling I have had church members ask me what kind of lifestyle a church should provide for their pastor. This book will hopefully answer that question as well as many others that deal with the relationship of churches, and pastors. This book will present a challenge to many. Those who desire to follow this God-ordained pattern will find this book very informative.
