The Preacher's Thoughts

THE PREACHER’S BEATITUDES

 I have been reading a book written by Dale Jenkins – ALL I EVER WANTED TO DO WAS PREACH. I certainly identified with the title.  In the book he lists the Beatitudes of Preaching. I share some of these with you. You may not be a preacher, but hopefully this will help you see your life in a more appreciative light.

Blessed is the man who has the honor of working with God’s people.

Blessed is the man who is privileged to stand before people with God’s Word and tell Truth.

Blessed is the man whose wife stands behind him in this endeavor.

Blessed is the man who knows the joy and pain of ministry.

Blessed is the man who gets to create memories.

Blessed is the man who can laugh at himself.

Blessed is the man who learns from the challenging experiences of ministry.

Blessed is the man who chooses to dwell more on the joys than the pains of preaching.

Blessed is the man who is loved and respected by the best people on earth, God’s people.

Blessed is the man who is blessed to preach.

 

I love my church!
