There is something very soul building about doing hard work.
It is something we are designed for, from the garden, from the beginning.
As a Pastor, sometimes the work you are doing seems nebulous. There is no hole dug, no cabinet made, no bricks laid, to show for your work.
Leadership, inspiring, counselling, imparting, praying.
All people skills, all having their results in somewhat undefinable areas.
Then there are things like preparation, video and computer work, setting up stages, arranging events, producing brochures. These things are much more definable. Part of making things happen.
As Spiritual Leaders we cannot get away from work, to see a community transformed is difficult. If we expect it to be easy, or to pander to our own laziness, we are in the wrong field.
