Pastor Chris : PASTORS ARE HUMAN TOO!
I stood up to teach in our midweek service. The first thing I 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! I was tired and it had been a really hard day.
Pastors and Medical doctors may have something in common- people believe they are fine as long as they 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
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 Sundays he did not feel like coming to
church but he still did! Some of the lovely suit covers the pains.
The year is coming to an end and I have seen pastors quit because of depression (true!).
You can put a smile on your pastors face as the year comes to an end! Buy gifts for your Pastor and his family too.
I have simply told you what your Pastor would never say!.
