Devos of the Week – 1 Thessalonians 2:7-12

“We were gentle…like a nurse tenderly caring for her own children…like a father with his own children.” Christian leaders can learn much from these verses.  I have observed many Christian leaders who talk about and put their visions/dreams ahead of relationships.  For Paul, ministry is a context of family. Leaders are parents who are gentle, tender, caring, urging and encouraging.  The goal is that all may actual live a life worthy of God who saves us and calls us.  Are these parenting fruits part of my ministry with people?  Lord, have mercy and make me to lead like you.
