From Preacher to Pastor

Saturday July 14th, Luke 10: 5-6"When you enter a home, greet the family, 'Peace.' If your greeting is received, then it's a good place to stay. But if it's not received, take it back and get out. Don't impose yourself. 7"Stay at one home, taking your meals there, for a worker deserves three square meals. Don't move from house to house, looking for the best cook in town. 8-9 "When you enter a town and are received, eat what they set before you, heal anyone who is sick, and tell them, 'God's kingdom is right on your doorstep!' No pastors in Cadillac Escalades or private jets, this is down to earth kingdom work. My father greeted the new pastor in town at the local coffee shop and asked to speak to him outside. Once outside he wanted to know what the “h” he thought he was doing dressed like that. He reminded the new pastor that this was a farming community and if he walked in the coffee shop in a coat and tie, they would speak nice to him, but not honestly. He went home to change into blue jeans, T-shirt and everyday shoes. That day he moved from preacher to pastor, and thanked my father for it.
