"You look very much like a (Church) minister," said an English gentleman to Woodrow Wilson (28th U.S. president), many years ago.
"Have you ever been taken for one?"
"No," was the reply, "but I have been treated like one."
"And how was that?"
"Well," said Mr. Wilson, "there was a time when I waited six months for my salary."

The Bible says: Give double honor to spiritual leaders who handle their duties well. This is especially true if they work hard at teaching the word of God. After all, Scripture says, “Never muzzle an ox when it is threshing grain,” and “The worker deserves his pay.” (1 Tim 5:17-18 NOG)
“The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others.” - John Chrysostom.
