Your Pastor Doesn’t Need to Know

As a Pastor in the local Church, I admit that I do not need to know everything about you.

I don’t need to know how much you read your Bible.
I don’t need to know how much you pray.
I don’t need to know how much you give financially.
I don’t need to know how much you serve.
I don’t need to know what you are doing to grow in your faith.

Your pastor does not need to know …

But you do. You need to know what is really going on in your life. You need to be honest about your faith and what you are doing with it. You need to regularly assess the areas where you need to work on your faith and those that are going well. You need to be keenly aware of the state of your own spiritual life.

If your Pastor knows these things it is because he is trying to help you, but if he doesn’t that is fine. Ultimately the person responsible for your spiritual growth is you not him.
