We have Appreciation Days for mothers, fathers, grandchildren and pets. Where are the Pastors or Priests Appreciation Days? We "hit" and "miss" going to Church, reading our Bibles and Tithing, while our Church leaders diligently and prayerfully prepare "that SPIRIT inspired" message just for us. They have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding us along in our obedience (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13); and what does the Bible tell us to do? "We are to overwhelm them with appreciation and love"; When is the last time you really "overwhelmed your Pastor or Priest with appreciation, love and prayer? James 3:1, "...not many of you should become teachers in the Church, for we who teach will be judged by GOD with greater strictness". Sometimes when I think I'll stay home from Church, I think about the Preachers who have prayed, been inspired and prepared that "special message" GOD has given them just for me. When do our Pastors feel appreciated? 3 John 1:3-4, "...when we faithfully live GODLY lives." Today is the Day to encourage and lift our Pastors up to the KING of Kings and OVERWHELM THEM WITH APPRECIATION, LOVE AND PRAYER.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
