Galatians 6:6 One who is taught the word must share all good things with the one who teaches.


Greg smiling

This verse shows the value of good sound teaching. I don’t know if Paul was referring to Himself and those who took to task the teaching of sound doctrine. The time and effort it took to share, not only the good news (Gospel) but also impart sound wisdom. As we know those who teach are under special scrutiny from God. They cannot take lightly their responsibility. So those who are so blessed to sit under sound teaching should recognize the teacher and all the effort that goes into sound teaching and must share all good thing with them. The main point here is;  For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. (Romans 16:19) The teacher is on display by those who are taught in the way they display christian walk. ‘Walk the walk” To have the gift of teaching is an awesome responsibility, and should be recognized by those being taught. But also to have the gift of teaching  we who have the gift didn’t seek it, it was imparted by a Sovereign God who with the gift will supply the grace to carry it out. To share all good things could mean a variety of things. first share your appreciation to the teacher and the God who works all thing together for good. If you can lift them up in a physical way do it. bearing one another’s burdens. A kind word is most appropriate,   and give’s  encouragement.  Never take for granted those who labor to teach sound doctrine, it is a blessing to sit under sound teachers. Heres an Idea, start a “Spiritual Hall of Fame” honor those who have had a big impact in your spiritual walk, over thirty years I have added seven people who buy God’s grace has changed my life.
