I get this question quite often because for most people it’s difficult to imagine the day to day life of a minister. I guess it’s easier to imagine what life is like for a police officer, a lawyer, or a doctor because these professions are not only more common but they are also the staples of prime time television drama. And on the rare occasion that television programming calls for a pastor, the guy is usually portrayed in a less than positive light (and that is putting it mildly).
But what is it like to be a pastor? What goes on day to day in the heart and mind of a man who honestly cares for the mission of God he’s been called to and the sheep of God he’s been called to care for?
In a recent post Jared Wilson has done a masterful job in answering this question.
