The pastor 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 was the last time he had a break?
He 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!.
Sometimes pastors put a smile on their faces and with strong courage, preach powerful sermons, pray for the needy then the entire congregation disperse leaving the pastor alone or probably with his wife yet he is undergoing through hell. He lacks someone he can share his woes but all run away.
Do you surely enquire how his week was and what is troubling him, his family and ministry. Don’t desire to provide for the ministry and omit the minister.
When you shop, remember your pastor. When you pray remember him. When you go for holiday, remember him and when visiting, do not forget to call at his house and God will take the grace upon his servant pastor and give it unto you.
You can put a smile on your pastor!!
Appreciate your Him.
Buy gifts for him 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!!!!!.
Don’t be tempted to fight him or fight what he’s doing you could be fighting against God Himself.
Support him and pray for him and warn those who Opposes your pastor.
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 them 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 OUR PASTORS IN JESUS NAME !
