PASTORS ARE HUMAN TOO!
He stood up to teach in our midweek service. The first thing he asked the entire congregation to do was to go and ask five people "How was your day?".
The church almost turned into market place when everyone went around asking, shaking and patting each others back. Some even hugged themselves!
I smiled as I saw it all. But Lo & Behold Guess what, no one came to the pastor to ask him such simple question 'How was your day?'. Yet! he was tired and it had been a really hard day for him.
Pastors and Medical doctors may have something in common- people believe they are fine as long as they are breathing!
You are quick to ask your pastor "Are you praying for me?" But have you ever told him "I am praying for you".
You know how to accuse the pastor of not visiting you but have you ever stopped by to check on him and his family?
You tell the pastor that you are going on vacation but have you ever wondered when last he had a break?
Your pastor smiles at you telling you "It is well with you" when at times, it is a prophecy for himself.
A pastor can officiate a wedding just after consoling a bereaved family (Can you imagine that emotional switch- yet he must be stable).
Your pastor is human too! Trust me, there are days he did not feel like coming to church but he still did! Some of the lovely suit covers the pains.
I have seen pastors quit because of depression (true!). Everyone knows how to fault a Pastor but not many know he has pains of his own. Everyone know how to judge a Pastors action but not everyone want him to discipline them even if its part of his job!
You can put a smile on your pastor!! Appreciate your Pastor. Buy gifts for your pastor and his family too. Send words and messages of love and encouragement to him. Seriously, when last did you call your Pastor just to wish him well and ask how he is?Distance is not a barrier!!!!! what to wear for a middle school prom party
Remember, he has the onerous job of watching over your spiritual well being. The happier and more stable he is, the better he will discharge his duties! Help your Pastor to succeed!
I have simply told you what some Pastors may never say!. Trust me!
God bless our Pastors!
God bless my Pastor!
