Being a pastor one would think that you obey God and serve others with complete joy and fulfillment all the time. Perhaps for someone that may be true, though I doubt it; but for myself it is far from reality.
There are many times I wonder: “Is this worth it?” “Maybe I should give up” or “How long, O Lord?” God was not clueless about these reactions. He knew that we, as people, grow tired and weary. I think that’s why Galatians 6:9 tells us, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
