But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. Exodus 17:12New King James Version
Just as Aaron and Hur supported their leader how much do you support your pastor or leader in church activities?
From my experience the most abused member in any congregation is the pastor.
He and his family are expected to live holy lives which no member in the church would dare try to live.
Everybody goes to him with their problems but how many are wiling to listen and help the pastor or anyone in his family when they experience problems in their lives?
Their children are expected to be angels while those judging them have children that are little devils.
Trying to get a raise out of the congregation is like trying to get a tax break from the government
Yet, how many in the church could live of the measly salary the pastor gets?
Do you think it is easy going and sitting with a dying member?
Do you think it is easy comforting the family when you have your own problems?
Try it if you dare.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me to be gracious, encouraging, comforting and a blessing to all pastors today and every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who always comforted His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
