Respect the people in charge (chapter 5)

Paul said that they should respect the people in charge, so that the leaders can admonish them.  These leaders should be esteemed very highly because of their work.  They should be at peace among themselves.  However, they should admonish the idlers.  At the same time, they should encourage the faint-hearted.  They had to help the weak but be patient with everyone.  They were not to repay evil for evil.  They should always seek to do good for their Christian brothers as well as all people.  Do you respect your Christian leaders?
