Perry Noble has a great post that I think all pastors and church workers should read entitled “10 Warning Signs that you Might Not Be Healthy”. Here are the first five:
#1 You cannot remember the last time you clearly heard the Word of God speak to you about an issue in your own life.
#2 You no longer use the Bible to learn more about Jesus and hear His voiceâ€¦you are simply using it to find your next sermon.
#3 You actually begin to hate and despise the people in your church (who, by the way, are the very people you are called to love!)
#4 You spend more time on the cell phone and computer when you are at home than you do with your own family.
#5 You are so obsessed with pleasing people and putting out fires that listening to God and doing what He says is no longer the goal of your life and ministry.
Pastors… church workers… you HAVE to be healthy. Â I’m tired of seeing friends and acquaintances fall. It all starts with a little crack. You think you have it covered, but before you know it, you’ve lost everything.
Friend, heed the warnings. If you need help, get help.
