A Needed Way of Thinking
Too often the church glamorizes and idolizes its pastors, serving to devalue the Kingdom of Priests who do the real work of being the hands and feet of Christ in the real world. I cringe each time I see someone serious about their faith pushed by someone else (usually a pastor) into vocational ministry. This is right for some (I plan on making this my career), but not for all. I always used to tell my youth group that we didn't need more pastors in this world, but that we needed more doctors, lawyers, plumbers, teachers, and construction workers to get serious about following Christ. I appreciate this cartoon from ASBO Jesus to once again remind of this often neglected truth.
