Pastor's Wife, Mom, Writer & Imperfect Seeker of Jesus
Pastors' Wives--The Perfect Pastor
September 24, 2015
Just for fun today I thought I’d share a job description that I ran across online. There are several versions, so here’s a compilation of some of the best.
THE PERFECT PASTOR
A recent survey compiled all the qualities that people expect from the perfect pastor:
~ Preaches exactly 12 minutes.
~ Frequently condemns sin but never upsets anyone.
~ Works from 8 a.m. until midnight and is also a janitor.
~ Makes $60 a week, wears good clothes, buys good books, drives a good car, and gives about $80 a week to the poor.
~ 28 years of age and has been preaching for 30 years.
~ Wonderfully gentle and good-looking.
~ Has a burning desire to work with teenagers, but spends all his time with the senior citizens.
~Never misses the meeting of any church organization
~ Makes 15 daily calls to church families, visits shut-ins and the hospitalized, evangelizes the unchurched, and is always in the office when needed.
All I can say is….BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
And for those of you whose husbands actually DO feel like this might not be that far off from your church’s job description for him, remind him that Jesus is calling…"Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28 HCSB)
