Although not central to the book’s theme, this tangental observation about pastoral life rings true:
…by design, ministry is menial work. It means being a servant, someone’s assistant, a helper. You are running errands. You lay down your life so that another person’s life might go better. Discontentment and complaining reveal pride, as if menial work were “beneath me.”
David Powlison, God’s Grace In Your Suffering, Crossway, 2018, pg. 41.
