The Pastor's Job

"As a pastor, I do not think it is my job to entertain you during the last days. It is not my calling to help you have chipper feelingswhile the whole creation groans. My job is to put the kind of ballast in the belly of your boat so that when these waves crash against your life, you will not capsize but make it to the harbor of heaven—battered and wounded, but full of faith and joy."

-- John Piper, "Spectacular Sins" (Crossway)
