5 Things I Need to Remind Myself as a Pastor

I love being a pastor. It is one of the most fulfilling things I have done. But it is easy to lose focus. I need to remind myself of some important truths on a regular basis.

  1. While I need to do my best, it is God that brings the success.
  2. My family is my most important congregation.
  3. I will never be able to please everyone (nor should I try).
  4. God is looking for me to be faithful and will not measure me against the accomplishments of others.
  5. Ministry will never be an acceptable alternative to my own relationship with God.
