I have an article printed in this month's Church of God Evangel magazine. It was written to say thank you to all the pastors I had as a youth and to tell others what I learned from each of them. It's called: They Shaped My Life (page 25). Some of these pastors have already gone to heaven, but I wish I'd thought to thank them. Though I was shy child, I realized that from each man, I learned something quite unique.
If you have or had a wonderful pastor, take time to tell him or her that you appreciate them. Send a card, or even better, a letter, to let them know how they've influenced your life. You'll be glad you did!
Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. Jeremiah 3:15
