Why I Do What I Do

A short while ago, I read a friend's blog titled the same, and I began thinking, "Why do I do what I do?" Why am I Pastor? Why do I choose to endure all of the ups and downs given in this line of work? Why do I opt for a low wage? I am not the smartest guy in the room, but I could earn a little more with my knowledge and abilities.

Likewise, people have asked me over the years why I have chosen to serve in this profession. It's an odd profession. I am seen as a Pastor, a supposed 'Shepherd,' 'Leader of Men,' 'Spiritual Guide.' Others think of Pastors as aloof, antiquated, and judgmental.
