DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Be A Financial Supporters Of Your Ministers
While our Lord Jesus Christ was here on earth, it is interesting to note that there were people particularly women that after he touched their lives in special ways, they decided to support his ministry with their substances. It is sad today that many come to church, they are blessed by the ministrations of the ministers of God and find it difficult to support such ministers with their substances like the women in our text did to Jesus Christ. We should support our ministers with our substances. Ministers are not beggars, they are entitled to receive from you – 1 Corinthians 9:11.
Point of Emphasis: Ministers are entitled to your material possessions.
Prayer Point: Help me Lord, to do the right thing and do it right in respect of our ministers.
