A somewhat contextless quote from Ron Edmondson that expresses a helpful reminder that pastors continually need to have brought to mind.

…the role of a shepherd is to lead sheep to the source of provision, not be the provision.
Shepherds point people to truth and grace, but you can (and should) trust God with people’s hearts.
The job of a shepherd is not to make grass or water. It’s to lead the sheep to quality grass and water.
You can’t change another person’s heart, so don’t be too frustrated when people don’t seem to change.
That’s God’s job.
