Shepherding a Church is a Tedious Job

To all Shepherds out there and my friends .
A *Shepherd* –
No one knows :
What a Shepherd hears,
What he sees,
The secrets he must keep,
The temptations he encounters,
The tears he sheds,
The sorrow he endures,
The loneliness he manages,
The bitterness he experiences,
The Lies levelled against him by some of the people he serves!
How he accommodates those who pretend they love him but behind, they destroy him.
How he tries to live more than a human,
The lack he suffers,
The discrimination he must not react to,
The accusations he has to mute at,
The expectations he strives to cope with,
Even a fellow Shepherd does not know what the other goes through.
He is alive for God and yet he lives for Us!
A Shepherd & the Shepherdhood is what no One can fully understand or comprehend!
The Shepherd hood is “A Mystery”!
The Shepherd is a mystery too!
A mystery is an incomprehensible intelligibility!
So ALL you can do for him is do pray for him.
A day must not pass without a standing in the gap for him!
Wish him well, & endeavor to understand him!
Make him happy at least,
For an unhappy Shepherd is a disaster to the Church of God!
Respect your Shepherd……..
Pray for your Shepherd……..
Encourage your Shepherd…..
Celebrate your Shepherd……
Stop Judging Shepherds because of what you heard or saw…
God bless you as you honor your Shepherd in Jesus name. Amen.
