What it means to pastor

 mother with child by elena kokin
To pastor in the words of Paul:

But we were gentle among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for her own children.  So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you have become dear to us.
1Thess. 1:7-8

A key verse on what it means to pastor:
like a nurse
as caring for her own children
deeply caring
sharing ourselves
sharing the gospel
loving your people

  1. Yes. Such great truth. These are attributes of God himself and of all who would be known by his Name.
