Labor and Suffer Reproach

1 Timothy 4
10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach , because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
11 These things command and teach .

Two things you do when you trust in the living God:
1. Labor – for a different reward than most men
2. Suffer Reproach – people that don’t understand heavenly rewards reproach you and think negatively about you

These are responsibilities for a Christian not only to do, but to command and teach.
