Today, I happened upon a Talk Show entitled 'The Doctors'. Today, they are discussing a wide range, variety of issues. At the top of the list & at the beginning of the program (Thank you Lord - just prior to me turning the television station) was the topic of 'Most Stressful Jobs'.
Interestingly, yet not surprising, was the projection of the President of the United States actually ages 8 years per term, due to the stress of his job, the weight of the economy, etc. Without saying, we know that if he is re-elected in 2004/05, the aging process moves to 16 years.
They also presented a list of THE MOST STRESSFUL JOBS:
- Inner City High School Teach
- Police Officer
- Air Traffic Controller
I began to wonder...what about the Pastor? Preacher? Evangelist?
One of two things come to mind:
1. Pastoring is not a real job.
2. Pastoring is easy.
Are Pastors immune to stress and anasthetized from sturggles? Thank God for His faithfullness!!!
