not pursuing dishonest gain. Titus 1:7f
There are plenty of ways to make a buck in this day and age. It’s also easy to lose a few of your morals and ethics to turn a fast buck. A solid Christian work ethic used to be “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.” But we often want the easy money. I believe it was John Wesley who turned down a pastorate because he said it was “too much money and too little to do.” That’s rare.
As a spiritual leader in the church, the pastor must be above board in his finances. People are watching, and especially so when it comes to money. The temptations are real and there are plenty of them.
Pray for your pastor, that he will be especially cautious on the subject of money. I suspect they already know that instinctively, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have others praying for him and his family. Pray that God will bless what he’s been given.
