Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Paying the preacher

A church had just hired a new pastor and the board was meeting to decide what his salary would be. One of the members opened the meeting with this prayer: "Lord, we know that your best servants are those who are poor and humble, and we want our pastor to be a good servant of yours, so if you will keep our pastor humble we'll keep him poor."

This happens more than I would care to mention.

 

A good way to determine a pastors salary is take the average families total yearly income and divide it by the families yearly income and that would be a good place to start, But seldom will that happen as only 10% of a church members tithe, so people won't tell the true income. Another was is take the average pastor's salary in a area and divide it, I find a good pastor that has been in ministry usually does not have a problem with a salary he and hs family can live on.
