We pastors can, at times, have a hard time admitting when things aren‘t going well and when our marriage is anything less than perfectly healthy. Many of us feel that we’re not supposed to share when things are hard or strained. We see this as a sign of weakness or failure, and we want to appear as if our personal lives fulfill the expectations laid out in 1 Timothy 3— to be above reproach, manage our families well, and have children who respect and obey us. The need to work on our marriages, through soul care or counseling, might mean other people will think we aren’t fit for ministry.
But this mind-set couldn’t be further from the truth!
