What It Takes To Be A Pastor

WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A PASTOR
AUTHOR UNKNOWN

Some time ago I came across an article entitled, “Qualifications of a Good Pastor,” and it further underscores the unreasonable demands often placed on God’s servants. It reads as follows:

A good pastor must have:
The strength of an ox,
The tenacity of a bulldog,
The daring of a lion,
The wisdom of an owl,
The harmlessness of a dove,
The industry of a beaver,
The gentleness of a sheep,
The versatility of a chameleon,
The vision of an eagle,
The hide of a rhinoceros,
The perspective of a giraffe,
The endurance of a camel,
The bounce of a kangaroo,
The stomach of a horse,
The disposition of an angel,
The loyalty of an apostle,
The faithfulness of a prophet,
The tenderness of a shepherd,
The fervency of an evangelist,
The devotion of a mother,
and still he could not please everybody!
