Wesley's Notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:13


5:13 Esteem them very highly - Literally, more than abundantly, in love - The inexpressible sympathy that is between true pastors and their flock is intimated, not only here, but also in divers other places of this epistle. See #1Thess 2:7|,8. For their work's sake - The principal ground of their vast regard for them. But how are we to esteem them who do not work at all?
