Thankful on the eighth of November

1 Peonies 1

I am thankful for the abundance of godly men throughout history who  have preached from and written about the Word of God. I am thankful for the abundance of excellent teachers even today who proceed with great care and humility as they approach that holy subject. I am also thankful for the godly women the Lord has equipped to teach other women—helping them along in their sanctification process. I praise God for His provision.

“I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,
and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:1–4).

“The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching” (1 Timothy 5:17).
