If this month is considered as Pastors’ Appreciation month, how would you appreciate your pastor? Does your pastor deserve an appreciation, and how much of it would you offer him?

Your pastor is your church leader who watches over your soul and leads you in the way of the Lord. Pastors’ job is much more involving than it appears on the surface.

The tasks that come along with pastoring God’s people are much more involving than they appear on the surface.

Pastors share the responsibility of their church members. They are all out there trying their best to help those in need.

If any comparison would be suitable, consider comparing your pastor to the president of a country who has an enormous burden to care for the citizens of his land.

Your pastor has a lot on his plate to deal with. Just imagine that your pastor is not only dealing with your issue; he is also dealing with the situations of other members of the congregation.

If any member has a problem, it also automatically got your pastor involved. He has to be there for such an individual. He has to stand in the gap by praying and providing other supports.

Your Pastor Is Human

Your pastor, who is often pressured to help solve other people’s problems, also has his own personal life with issues to address.

Your pastor, just like every other human being, has to care for himself and his family.

Perhaps, your pastor even has more problems to shove aside while he’s trying to solve yours!

Have you considered that your pastor may be fighting more turbulence than you do? Think about that and do something about it!

GOD DOES NOT REWARD FALSE CHARITY – Matthew

Honest Charity Deserves Good Reward

It is good to be good! When we act in good faith, people are blessed, and God is glorified.

No doubt that God sees our charity efforts. He is surely keeping the record, and he will reward them in due time.

God and his angels rejoice when someone goes out of his way to bless his fellow human being, but not only are heavenly hosts celebrating the good deed, but God keeps the record; he will hands down his good reward for the effort.

Since an act of charity is honorable in the sight of the Lord, Christians are encouraged to engage in it.

Charity Worker, Check Your Motive

Not all charity works are visible to others, but some can’t really be kept secret from the public eyes. In such a situation, people may acknowledge and shower praises on the worker. However, the charity worker must take caution and not get carried away with the praises he receives.

A person who does a thing to receive human praise has gotten all he deserves. He may not necessarily receive God’s reward afterward since he’s all out seeking human’s approval and praises.

As children of God, our efforts must not focus on receiving human’s praises but must focus on glorifying God.

When selfishness is not the driving motive, the result of our efforts will be so praise-worthy in the presence of God.

Meanwhile, besides any human’s praises and acknowledgment, God knows how best to reward our righteous services that focus on helping humanity and glorifying the name of God.

God will reciprocate our true efforts with riches and glory in his kingdom. He will also bless us on earth.

“Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you; they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. (Matthew 6:2-4).

God’s Reward Awaits Your True Services

God is an honest deity; he also respects people who share the same attribute. True worshipers score a high mark with God, but people’s pleasers won’t go far!

As a child of God, you should evaluate your motive in any matter.

Ask yourself, “Why am I doing what I’m doing: Am I doing it to receive human’s praises, or I’m doing it to receive God’s praises?”

Self-seeking praise may go well with humans, but it doesn’t go well with God. Let your efforts be motivated by love; let your action glorify God! 

Allow God to Guide Your Actions Human flesh is in enmity with God – Flesh will encourage you to go in the way of human satisfaction, which means you will have to seek human praises to meet the demand. The flesh will motivate you to parade your charity, but the Holy Spirit of God can help you overcome that challenge. Those who are led by the Spirit are the children of God! Ask God to give you the strength and power not to be selfish nor seek
