E-Cheer: Pray for Pastors
by David George

"Biscuits and sermons are both improved by shortening." Sorry,
pastors -- just kidding.-- it’s not my quote.

Pastors are a special category of human beings. If they spend too
much time visiting, they are accused of not spending enough time
studying and vice versa -- they can’t win. They have to be made of
foam rubber so that everything will bounce off and not hurt them.
They get more calls at supper time from grumbling church
members than they do from telemarketers.

We’ve been fortunate to have more good pastors during our years
of music ministry than otherwise. Some are better pastors than
preachers. Some are great in the pulpit but not good at one-to-one
relationships. Some are blest enough to be both. It takes a unique
blend of qualities to make a good pastor, but we fail to remember
that they are also human, so we need to be forgiving. You and I
probably wouldn’t put up with what we expect them to handle.

Want to cheer up your pastors? Give them a hug and tell them that
you pray for them every day -- you do, don’t you?

Paul closed his second letter to the Corinthian church this way in 2
Cor. 13:11 (nlt), “...Change your ways. Encourage each other
(especially your pastor). Live in harmony and peace. Then the
God of love and peace will be with you.” We can change our
churches for the better by obeying that verse.
