As we walk away from October and Pastor Appreciation month:

"Dear brothers,
honor the officers of your church who work hard among you and warn you against all that is wrong.
Think highly of them and give them your wholehearted love because they are straining to help you. 
And remember, no quarreling among yourselves."

~ 1 Thessalonians 5:12 & 13 LAB

Bible Commentary:  "Think of your pastor and other church leaders. How can you honor them? Express your appreciation, tell them how you have been helped by their leadership and teaching, and thank them for their ministry in your life. If you say nothing, how will they know where you stand? Remember, they need and deserve your support and love expressed in practical ways?"

While this information is for our church leaders, I am thinking about businesses and their shortage of employees. I am doing a story for our local newspaper on that topic right now.

Some employees aren't treated the best, as there aren't enough people in many retail and service businesses to be able to give the same service and attention to us customers that we have come to expect.

If you have a couple of minutes re-read the verses and substitute 'businesses' and/or 'employees'.
