At Energize Ministries, we believe that supporting your pastor means also supporting his or her family. Have you ever walked in the shoes of a pastor’s kid? It’s like living under a microscope. People notice how they dress, act, talk, post on social media and behave in church and school. When critical comments reach their tender ears, it can cause anger and anxiety, often leading to resentment toward the church.
Take time today to pray for your pastor’s whole family. And, the next time you see his or her son or daughter, be the one to brighten their day by sharing some encouraging words. It will put a smile on their face today, and could have an impact that lasts a lifetime.
This “Minute for Your Minister” is brought to you by Energize Ministries—providing encouragement, refreshment and recreation for your pastors and ministry leaders.
