Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.

– 1 Timothy 5:17

He who desires the position of elder desires a good work. And the elder who rules well is worthy of great honor, especially those who labor, teaching the Scriptures. It feel almost self-serving to highlight these verses, but these are important Scriptural principles that we do well to consider and heed.
