Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Pastor Appreciation

October 19th, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Showing Appreciation for the Pastor.October is Pastor Appreciation Month.

There are several ways we can show support for those who serve in church leadership.

The first way is to thank them.  We can tell them what we appreciate about them and specific ways we have been blessed by their ministry.

A second way is to pray for them. First Timothy 2:1 urges us to pray for those in authority positions.

A third way is to learn from their example. Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.”

A fourth way is to cooperate with them.  Hebrews 13:17 urges us to obey our leaders and submit to their authority. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden.

Showing Appreciation for our Pastor is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
