Of all the subjects and themes presented in Christian periodicals, magazines and books, none is so neglected as the working Pastor.
God will never bless a church that neglects taking care of their Pastor be he working or not.
All around the world there are Pastors who are in total or in part supplementing their income by working out in the world.
They need all the help and encouragement we can give them!
They have answered the call of God and are where God has put them. Yet they are men of like passions as we all are and they struggle very deeply at times in completely understanding their predicament.
In the success oriented society we live in we often carry this similar mentality into the spiritual realm. It is hard for the preacher not to equate success with numbers!
Yet, God defines success and greatness quite differently.
It has been said that a working Pastor speaks louder than the greatest sermon ever preached. That is because he is a living sermon.
So, dear Pastor, lift up your head and never be ashamed of your calling.
“Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly, not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” I Peter 5:2-4
