Where in the Bible does it talk about taking care of the pastor
1 Timothy Chapter 5, Verses 17 & 18:
Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, that is, acknowledge that, especially the ones who labor in the word and doctrine, or teaching. For the scripture says, and there are two pieces of scripture here that Paul uses to back it up.
First of all, Deuteronomy Chapter 25 Verse 4: He says thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treads out the corn.
In 1 Corinthians Chapter 9, Paul says, "You don't think that God was talking about oxen do you?" If you have oxen treading the corn, you got to feed the oxen too, or else he's not going to be around to tread the corn for you.
The second scripture is
. The words of Jesus, The laborer is worthy of his reward, or hire.
So acknowledge those who labor in the word, and in doctrine, and make sure that they're taken care of.
Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. (
1 Timothy 5:17-18
Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. (
But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
