Washington's Humility

A rider on horseback, many years ago, came across a squad of soldiers who were trying to move a heavy piece of timber. A corporal stood by, giving lordly orders to "heave". But the piece of timber was a trifle too heavy for the squad.

"Why don't you help them?" asked the quiet man on the horse, addressing the important corporal.

"Me? Why, I'm a corporal, sir!" Dismounting, the stanger carefully took his place with the soldiers.

"Now, all together, boys--heave!" he said. And the big piece of timber slid into place. The stranger mounted his horse and addressed the corporal.

"The next time you have a piece of timber for your men to handle, corporal, send for the commander-in-chief."

The horseman was George Washington.

The Preacher's Wife

There is one person in your church
Who knows your preacher's life.
She's wept and smiled and prayed with him

 And that's your preacher's wife.

She knows one prophet's weakest point,
And knows his greatest power.
She's heard him speak in trumpet tone,
In his great triumph hour.

She's heard him groaning in his soul,
When bitter raged the strife.
As hand in his she knelt with him
For she's a preacher's wife.

The crowd has seen him in his strength,
When gleamed his drawn sword,
As underneath God's banner folds
He faced the devil's horde.

But she knows deep within her heart
That scarce an hour before,
She helped him pray the glory down
Behind a closet door!

You tell your tales of prophets brave,
Who walked across the world,
And changed the course of history,
By burning words they hurled.

And I will tell how back of them
Some women lived their lives,
Who wept with them and smiled with them

They were the preacher's wives!

BE A GOOD PASTOR

Good Morning Unity and Community;
Ever wonder what it takes to be a good Pastor? Paul, in Timothy and Titus, laid out the qualifications of a pastor. But a man can meet all those qualities and still not be a good pastor. I have known men who knew their Bible forward and backwards, but when it came to the pastoring part they knew very little. I know men today who spend more time doing their own things, such as, fishing, hunting, golfing, etc., than they do pastoring. I know those who are receiving a full salary and making more money on the side working than their salary. So of these don't even tithe to the church they pastor.
Peter, in I Peter 1-4, gives some of the best qualities of a pastor. These sermons are some of the toughest to preach, because we as pastors have to preach them to ourselves first. When you look at what Peter says here in these verses pastors, you will probably find yourself falling a little short of your job.
Come out this morning to Unity and listen to what it takes to "Be a Good Pastor." Worship services begin at 10:45. Hope and Pray to see you there!!!!

Pastors, in churches today, are judged in several different ways.
How do you judge your Pastor?? #sermonprep #thegoodpastor

1:01 pm

Do we judge our pastors on tradition or on Biblical principles?

By how many are saved in the church in a year.
By how many are baptized in a year.
By how many join the church in a year.
By how many people he visits in a week.
But I find none of these qualifications in the Bible.

1:06 pm
When fiery trials come, would the believers look to their pastor for
encouragement and direction? #whodoyouturntoo

1:09 pm
First a shepherd must protect his sheep. #watchingoutfor

1:12 pm
Not only does he protect them but he must lead them from pasture to pasture so they can be feed.#feedingtheflock

1:51 pm
He must search out the Word of God so that his flock can be properly fed without feeding them something that would cause them to perish. #feedingthetruth

1:52 pm
Some pastors today are only interested in large crowds. #ticklingtheears

1:54 pm
Next, he must take the oversight.The word “bishop” means “overseer, one who looks over for the purpose of leading.”

1:56 pm
We as pastors are also sheep among the rest of you, but we are called to be a leader over you. #livingamongthem

1:58 pm
The effective pastor needs both relationships.
He must be among his people so that he can:
Know them.
Know their needs.
Know their problems.
He must be over them so he can:
Lead them
Help them
Maybe solve their problems.

1:59 pm
There are sins that can creep into the pastor's ministry. #watchout

2:05 pm
First is laziness. “Not by constraint, but willing.”

2:07 pm
When a man has a pastor’s heart, he loves people and serves them because he wants to not because he has to. #lovingGodlovingeachother

2:10 pm
Second is covetousness. “Not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind.”

2:24
Paying a man to pastor is proper and it is also scriptural.
But the pay is not the reason for being a pastor.

2:31 pm
A man who will not preach the Word of God without getting paid for it, is in it for the money. I know those who say"If they are going to pay me, I won't go and preach." Better check your calling. #Godcalledmen

2:33 pm
Third is dictatorship. "Neither being lord's over God's heritage." There is a big difference between leadership dictatorship.

2:34 pm
It has been well said that the church needs leaders who serve and servants who lead. #servantsneeded

2:36 pm
He is to be an example.
To be an example means he must be willing to do what he asks his people to do.#leadingbyexample

2:37 pm
A good shepherd will only want to please the owner of the sheep he is watching over. #pleasingGod

2:38 pm
Churches today need leaders who have a desire to please the Lord Jesus Christ and not man. #traditionversestruth

2:40 pm
If he has done those things which he is accountable for he will receive a crown of glory.The glory of a shepherd should come from the owner not the sheep. #seekingthecrown
