The Pastor’s Worst Enemy
What could that be? David Murray capably answers that question, outlining the causes, the consequences, and the cure. Of course, when we all take a reality check, isn’t this everyone’s worst enemy? It used to be a vice, but now it is almost universally regarded (even by many Christians) as a virtue.
Some good food for thought….often defensiveness and unwillingness to listen to constructive critism from anyone is because of our sinful pride. Something we say to our kids often….the more defensive you get, the more that is the sin of pride at work. Sometimes you have to let people be wrong.
