Another Kind Word

Morning Service
May 14, 2023

The second chapter of Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians is marked by a clear picture of pastoral care: the shepherd of the flock is gentle, affectionate, and caring, much like a nursing mother. Alistair Begg underscores that the all-encompassing nature and sacrificial role of motherhood, which is a responsibility and a privilege from God, provides a helpful pattern and purpose for pastors. Although ministers of the Gospel should boldly proclaim God’s Word, in doing so, they take care to reflect Jesus, the one who bids all people come, for He is “gentle and lowly in heart.”
