(A Must Read For Every Pastor & Parents)
At her father’s funeral the pastor’s daughter (who was a prostitute) watched and listened as church members described all wonderful deeds done by the pastor of 10,000 capacity church and worldwide television ministry.
They spoke about his care, love, generosity, miracles, signs and wonders and tenderness when he was alive.
But after the funeral the daughter of the late pastor asked her siblings and her mother – who was that man those people were talking about at the funeral – is he the same man that raised us?
They must be telling lies. All the children including Jack (a drug addict) agreed that they were telling lies.
But their mother said they were not telling lies,
YOUR FATHER WAS A GOOD PASTOR, BUT A BAD HUSBAND AND BAD FATHER,
HE GROOMED AND GREW THE CHURCH BUT LEFT HIS FAMILY GROANING.
FIRE WAS IN HIS BONE TO WORK FOR GOD, BUT LOVE, AFFECTION AND INTIMACY WAS NEVER IN HIS MIND FOR HIS FAMILY, I WAS HIS WIFE, CHURCH WAS HIS MISTRESS, HE LOVED THE MISTRESS AND ABANDONED HIS WIFE,
HE WON THE CHURCH BUT LOST HIS FAMILY, WHAT A SHAME!
The children later wrote and placed on his tomb:
DAD, YOU PASTORED AND NURTURED THEM BUT ABANDONED US.
DAD, YOU DID A LOT OF REVIVAL PROGRAMS BUT YOUR FAMILY IS NEVER REVIVED.
DAD, YOU COUNSELED THEM, BUT WE LIVED WITHOUT COUNSEL.
DAD, YOU WERE A SHEPHERD BUT WE LIVED WITHOUT A PASTURE, YOU SHOWED THEM LOVE, BUT WE LIVED IN THE DESERT OF AFFECTION.
DAD, YOU WERE A SUCCESSFUL PASTOR, COUNSELOR, BUT A TOTAL FAILURE AS A HUSBAND AND FATHER.
DAD, WE HARDLY KNOW THAT YOU ARE DEAD, BECAUSE YOU WERE NEVER THERE FOR US.
THIS ONE THING WE PROMISE YOU, WE WILL NEVER SERVE YOUR GOD.
(Share it until it gets to every pastor and Church leaders, or the fathers that get busy pleasing the world and abandoning their families; many such families are hurting, please save one).
