There are many accounts wherein the Bible reveals God’s desire to compensate properly those who labor in the Lord’s vineyard. When Jesus appointed the 72 and sent them out two by two, he gave specific instructions as to their conduct. He was very specific, and it clues us in to how ministers must be compensated. Jesus instructed them, if anyone was generous enough to offer them lodging and food, they were to accept it.
7 Stay there, and eat and drink anything they give you. Workers are worthy of their pay. Do not move around from house to house. (Luke 10:7)
According to Aubrey Malphurs and Steve Strope, authors and seminarians:
People are God’s human agents for ministry effectiveness (1 Cor. 3:5–9). Your ministry will be only as good as the people who serve the Lord and the church. Scripture is clear that the workers deserve their wages…. It’s unbiblical (and shameful) when a church fails to take care of its staff.
