“Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being examples to the flock."
1 Peter 5:2-3
What an awesome charge God has given to those that are pastors! He's blessed us with the responsibility of covering His heritage. Even in the face of criticism, frustration, and lack of support, our responsibility remains the same. We must be ready at all times to protect the flock of God, provide oversight for them, and be the example of victory, hope and endurance that he makes us to be. In our own might, that's not possible, but thankfully through Christ, we can do all things (Philippians 4:13).
Most Gracious and Heavenly Father, bless every faithful and concerned leader that you've put in place. Help us to appreciate your faithfulness to us, so that we can exhibit your faithfulness to your people and be the examples that you've called us to be. Where we are weak, please make us strong so that we won't fail to cover your flock. Thank you for being everything that we need and more! In Jesus Name, Amen.
