So We Long To Pastor Large Congregations…

This is from a letter, written by a pastor called John Brown, to one of his students, who had been appointed to a small congregation.  It’s a gentle warning to those who aspire to ‘greater’ things.

“I know the vanity of your heart and that you will feel mortified that your congregation is very small, in comparison with those of your brethren around you; but assure yourself on the word of an old man, that when you come to give an account of them to the Lord Christ, at his judgement seat, you will think I have had enough.”
