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!
Always remember that your pastor is a fellow human being who puts his problem aside to try to be of help to you.
Never take the kindness of your pastor for granted – Appreciate him!
Your pastor has a spiritual responsibility to watch over your soul. He watches over you in prayers. He feeds you with the word of God. He also tries his best to offer you moral support and other help whenever you need one.
Appreciate Your Pastor
