This instruction is given regarding the treatment of pastors.

1.  Paying pastors - worthy of double or generous pay if they oversee well
2.  Punishing pastors - publicly held accountable by more than one witness
3.  Picking pastors - carefully chosen with a proven track record

The pastor is to oversee God's work in the church.  It is a position with great responsibility and accountability.  Congregational authority is holding the pastor accountable in these areas of doctrine and deportment.

Walk with the Lord and practice grace toward pastors!!!
