|Luke 10:4-8 |
4 Carry neither purse, nor bag, nor shoes; and greet no man on the way.
5 And into whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace be to this household.'
6 And if a man of peace is there, your peace will rest upon it; if not, it shall return to you again.
7 Remain in the same house, eating and drinking those things which they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his hire.2 Do not go from house to house.
8 And into whatever city you enter, where they welcome you, eat whatever they set before you.
2 Notice! Jesus said, Remain in the same house, eating and drinking those things which they give you; for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Their wages were what they were voluntarily given, not what they requested, not what they begged, not a contribution, not a pledge, not a tithe — only what they were given, that was to be the wages of their hire. Freely you have received, freely give. Mat 10:8. Peter, Jesus, Paul, and Jude forbid preachers to solicit money, and sudden disaster overcomes any who do.
