Correct Your Orientation About Pastors Today!

The lawyer is working,
The lecturer is working,
The journalist is working,

But the pastor is playing abi?
You try, Clap for yourself.

You think everyone else in every other profession is really busy, but when it's a pastor, you say 'go and look for a job'.

Well done!

We applaud professions that don't offer real value to people but think less of Pastors who do.

Footballers earn far more than doctors,
Comedians earn far more than teachers,
Most Pastors earn very little or nothing.
And you think that's fine?

How has Basketmouth saved your marriage or helped deliver you from addiction?

But pastors are involved daily, bearing the brunts of helping people live a better life and yet when we see them own few things we behave as though they don't deserve anything.

In case you don't know, being a pastor is one of the most demanding and sacrificial works I know on earth.

I am a pastor. I have been a pastor for the past 28 years now.
I have been to police stations severally because of church members.
I have visited several hospitals and spent nights there awake because of church members.

I have travelled long distances, given up my belongings, attended to marriages at the verge of divorce, and conducted funerals all because of church members.

The last was a family who was barely 4 months in the church had an accident and the woman and her baby died on the spot. When I got there, their whole family was crying to me, asking me in tears 'Pastor why?'

Who else is supposed to answer such a question? Its always the pastor. Yet in the midst of that, he brings courage and restores hope.

But when it comes to a pastor having money, people will frown and wag their tongue against it. And yet the economy is not different for pastors o!

Everyone else cries but when a pastor does, he has no faith.

Everyone can bring their problems to the pastor but no one asks if pastor has eaten, he should tell it to God. Even when they know, they abandon him to it and say "after all, he said God called him"

Everyone else can be forgiven when they make a mistake, but pastors' mistakes are unforgivable. ('And he calls himself a pastor' is always the line)

Everyone can be rich but not pastors, else the society will begin to talk.

You will read headlines, "members are poor but the pastor is rich" but you won't ever hear of or read when "members are rich and their pastor is poor".

You think it doesn't happen?

I have seen a church where many members have big cars but they all drive home without anyone offering to drop pastor and his family home first, not to talk of buying him a car.

Do you know that the majority of Pastors are actually struggling financially, doing menial ones to survive? But they won't tell you. See, let me tell you if you see a pastor doing jobs while in ministry, let your heart be moved favourably toward them and treat them honourably especially your Pastor. 

They are doing so out of need, the heaviness of heart and neglect by their church members. 

Be touched to bless them. Have a programme of blessing to your Pastor. If you are a salary earner, arrange to bless your Pastor from every of your salary, it is not in the size but love. That s will greatly make them happy and encourage them.

They're sacrificing a lot. When you are asleep, they are awake praying for you, your job, family and business. As you are free to enjoy your spouse at will, they can not for prayer and fasting, all because of church members. Worst still, when your business booms, you Don't remember them, you may even take offence for little correction and leave the church, off you go.
Correct Your Orientation About Pastors Today!

Instead of you quoting scriptures to teach that pastors should work (as if pastoring is not hard work), it should be your desire to be able to care for them, help meet their needs and constantly put smiles on their faces.

Don't join the bandwagons of ingrates who dislike pastors and do all they can to defame them
I pray you today, celebrate Pastors and their wife's, even children, they have sacrificed and pay prices because of you.

God bless every Pastor in the house.
