Devotion: Pay Your Teachers

Do you financially support those who ministers to your spiritual needs?  So many of us will gladly give money to those things that entertain us, to those things that feed our flesh, and to those things, whatever they may be, that we deem worthy of financial support, but we are cautious, sometimes even reluctant about giving money to those who feed our spirit.  Yes, we realize there are some who claim to be “ministers of righteous” (I Corinthians 11:12-15), whose sole purpose is to deceive us, but should they deter us from supporting those who are truly of kingdom of God?  Scripture tells us,“not to believe every spirit but to put each one to the test to see if they are from God” (I John 4:1-6) which has been designed to help us identify those with “the spirit of Antichrist.”

So, do not allow your fear of being deceived prevent you from supporting those working in the kingdom to God, who actually feed the spiritual needs of the world.  Test each of those spirits, just as the scriptures instruct you to and invest your money wisely into the kingdom and support those who feed us spiritually.  The return on that investment will pay amazing dividends in the long run.

We pray that this inspirational message will give you a new perspective on “supporting those who spiritually feed you.”  We also pray that the message will bless you, inform you, and that you will be the better for having read it.  If blessed by this message please share so that others may be blessed as well.  Amen.

Enjoy your blessings - KW
