"And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. Be at peace among yourselves."-
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
ثُمَّ نَسْأَلُكُمْ أَيُّهَا الإِخْوَةُ أَنْ تَعْرِفُوا الَّذِينَ يَتْعَبُونَ بَيْنَكُمْ وَيُدَبِّرُونَكُمْ فِي الرَّبِّ وَيُنْذِرُونَكُمْ، وَأَنْ تَعْتَبِرُوهُمْ كَثِيراً جِدّاً فِي الْمَحَبَّةِ مِنْ أَجْلِ عَمَلِهِمْ. سَالِمُوا بَعْضُكُمْ بَعْضاً.
1 تسالونيكي 5 : 12-13
