Being a Husband, Father, & Pastor

While I am not a husband (until June 12th, 2010) or a father (until sometime after marriage), I am in full-time ministry operating as a pastor.  Looking ahead to the near future I have come to think more about how to be a proper husband, father and pastor all at the same time.  I have seen some good examples in my life as well as some bad examples.

I came across a link on facebook to the Resurgence.com that had an excellent article on this subject.  It laid out three great points worth noting:

1. The church can get another pastor, but your kids can’t get another dad.
2. The church can get another pastor, but your wife only has one husband—and she needs a good one.
3. A day off is not just a good idea. It is essential.

I highly suggest that not only pastors & their wives read the article Lead Your Family Well, but all those with a desire to serve the Lord – those in “full-time ministry”, those who work 40 hours in the world plus serve the Lord, and those who are raising families at home plus serve the Lord.
