As a pastor people will attempt to manipulate you, use you when they realize you are scared of what people will think. When you fear what people will think you become afraid to confront, challenge, even speak up against unfairness, abuse, and wrongs. “A pastor is not suppose to say that? ” This is the familiar language of many manipulative people. When Yeshua took whip and flogged people out of the temple: “So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; HE SCATTERED the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.” John 2:15.Was a pastor suppose to do that? When Yeshua called Herod a fox was a pastor supposed to say that? If Yeshua was scared of what people will Think, He won’t eat with sinners, He will push Mary away from washing His feet with her a hair publicly. Don’t let peoples opinions stop you!!
