Shepherds Wanted…

1024 575 Wayne

“Not every Christian man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a gift for speaking should be a pastor.

I say this kindly—if your drive is not to feed the sheep, please quit. You may have missed your calling. Your gifts could be used more effectively elsewhere, perhaps for starting a business or a nonprofit.

We don’t need any more salesmen in the pulpit. We need tenders of the sheep. We need shepherds up to their elbows in Christ’s little lambs.

Pastor, if you do not get to the end of your week without at least a little wool on your jacket, you might not be a shepherd.”

~ Jared C. Wilson
