How Can I Bless My Pastor?
October is Pastor Appreciation Month. The California Southern Baptist Convention has designated October as Pastor Appreciation month which encourages our churches to guard themselves from taking God's servants for granted. The scriptures say, "Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord's work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance. Show them great respect and wholehearted love because of their work."
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 "In the same way, the Lord ordered that those who preach the Good News should be supported by those who benefit from it." 1 Corinthians 9:14
God will bless a church that takes care of their pastors and ministers. They are servants of God and the church ant it's their focus to be obedient to God's calling in their lives; and that is a life of sacrifice. Your pastors and ministers, including their spouses, wholeheartedly put their whole life into the church - serving and ministering. And they trust God and the church to take care of their needs so their focus is not distracted by the cares of the world. Prayerfully consider to fully understand the needs of your pastors and ministers and take care of them.
These are some suggestions:
⇒ Pray regularly for your pastors & ministers.
⇒ Pray for their preaching, teaching and leading.
⇒ Pray for their families and the demands that church life has on them.
⇒ Pray for God's protection against temptation for the enemy would like to destroy their ministry.
⇒ Pray for physical and mental health that they may minister with God's wisdom and discernment and make wise and sound decisions.
⇒ Take up a special love offering to be divided among the staff.
⇒ Send a gift card, cards and letters of appreciation.
⇒ Give them a hug and a pat on the back.
⇒ Take them to lunch or dinner.
⇒ Spend time talking to them and getting to know them and their family.
⇒ Involve them in your family activities.
