Pastors have a tough job. They get more kicks than kisses.

If a pastor is young, he lacks experience; if he’s grey-haired, he’s too old.

If he has five kids, he has too many; if he has none, he’s setting a bad example.

If his wife sings in the choir, she’s being forward; if not, she’s not dedicated enough.

If he preaches from notes, he’s dry; if his words are impromptu, he’s too shallow.

If he spends too much time in his study, he’s neglecting his people; if he makes home visits, he’s not a good time manager.
Worried
If he’s attentive to the poor, he’s after public approval; if he attends to the wealthy, he’s ingratiating.

If he suggests improvements, he’s a dictator; if he doesn’t, he has no vision.

If he uses too many illustrations, he neglects the Bible; if he doesn’t use enough stories, he’s unclear.

If he speaks against wrong, he’s legalistic; if he doesn’t, he’s a compromiser.

If he preaches for an hour, he’s windy; less than that, he has nothing to say. If he preaches the truth, he’s offensive; if he doesn’t, he’s wishy-washy.

If he fails to please everybody, he’s hurting the church; if he tries to please everybody, he has no convictions.

If he preaches tithing, he’s a money–grabber; if not, he’s failing to develop his people.
If he receives a large salary, he’s mercenary; if he doesn’t, it proves he’s not worth much.

If he preaches on a regular basis, people get tired of hearing the same person; if he invites guest preachers, he’s shirking his responsibility.

Wow! And you thought your pastor had an easy life! How’d you like to change places? Bottom line: love your pastor. The word for today.
