The Pastor’s Heavy Happy Heart – Pure Church by Thabiti Anyabwile

After a very emotional week on a number of fronts, this piece captures the heart of a pastor who longs to care for His sheep.  A great excerpt:

“The most difficult part of pastoral ministry is keeping a caring heart. The caring heart makes the pastor, and the caring heart nearly kills the pastor. He wouldn’t have it any other way, like Paul. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a thousand deaths, weeping nights, deprivations, and afflictions.”

Pray for your pastors!  The enemy is often only the culture, but even more so.
