The word ‘communicate’, ‘koinoneo’ means ‘to give a share too.’ Honor and communicate thus mean to reward financially; to reward financially those who teach us. They are thus very different from the meanings we have given to these words, we have spiritualized them away. Without the proper financial reward in any area of life, communication and honor break down. Try working for somebody who does not pay you, or pays you poorly, and see how long there is a communication between you, or any honor of his position.
