Hope for Weary Pastors
I ran across this statistic recently that said eighty percent of pastors’ wives wish their husbands would choose another profession. Wow! And it said fifty percent of pastors are so discouraged that they would leave the ministry immediately if they could make a living any other way. Yikes! Half the pastors want to do something else! Why is that? It's because being a pastor is hard. The devil attacks the pastor on a regular basis knowing that if he can destroy the pastor and his family, he can really hurt the church. Now let me encourage you today to pray for your pastor and be an encouragement to him. And Pastors, remember Galatians 6:9, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not grow weary.” Now that's Real Hope.
