A Word in Season Day 3
Sunday, October 3, 2010 Pastor Appreciation
Why You Should Celebrate Pastor's Appreciation
1 Timothy 5:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
Pastors, like everyone else, need to feel appreciated and encouraged in their ministry. Your appreciation helps ease the stress of the demands of ministry. Your support energizes your pastor to carry out the various ministries of the church.
According to the New York Times (August 1, 2010) "Members of the clergy now suffer from obesity, hypertension and depression at rates higher than most Americans. In the last decade, their use of antidepressants has risen, while their life expectancy has fallen. Many would change jobs if they could."
Reasons to Have Pastor Appreciation Celebration:
1. Encourage the Heart of the Pastor - Revitalize
2. Organize the Efforts of Individuals - Unity
3. Communicate - Express Your Love
4. To Have a Fun and Relaxed Time With Your Pastor
5. Inspire and Provoke Others to Appreciate the Pastor
Prayer Focus: Father, help me as an individual, and as a church family, to express our love and appreciation for our pastor.
Verse of the Day: 1 Thess 5:13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
Living the Word Today: Get involved with Pastors Appreciation Celebration at your church.
