He stood up to teach in our midweek service. The first thing he asked the church to
do was to go ask someone “How was your day?”.
Everyone went around asking, shaking and patting each others back. Some even
hugged themselves!
I smiled as I saw it all. Guess what, no one came to the pastor to ask that 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!!!!! 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! You can start
by sharing this with others!
God bless my Pastor
