Bible: 1 Timothy 5:17-19

5:17 Elders who provide effective leadership 1  must be counted worthy 2  of double honor, 3  especially those who work hard in speaking 4  and teaching. 5:18 For the scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” 5  and, “The worker deserves his pay.” 6  5:19 Do not accept an accusation against an elder unless it can be confirmed by two or three witnesses. 7
