What to Say to Spiritual Leaders

When I got up early this morning, I read this verse from the last part of the book of Colossians
"Say to Archippus, 'See that you complete the task that you have received in the Lord.'" Colossians 4:17
These words are directed to the people of the church at Colossae. The encouragement here, from the Apostle Paul, is that the people of the church would tell a particular spiritual leader to keep at the task that THE LORD HAS GIVEN him, so that he would not slack off or give up.

This is not a call for the people to tell their leader what THEY would want him to do, but, rather, that they push him to do what GOD has told him to do.

Are you encouraging your spiritual leaders in this way?
