From the Inside Flap
"We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. . . ." (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13, ESV)
The church that flourishes is the church that heeds the call of God to esteem those "who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you."
