I was reading this story about Peyton Manning being the most respected player in the NFL. The story included this quote by another players:
“A guy like Peyton, you watch how he does things, how he works, even now when he works like a guy just trying to make it, not a guy who’s done what he has, you always have hope. And that’s rare.”
The quote made me wonder what it would mean to be a pastor who prepares and works like a guy or gal who is “just trying to make it.”
Or, perhaps to be a little less worldly about things, what does it mean to be a pastor who pursues his or her vocation in a way that leads to God saying “Well done, by good and faithful servant”?
