Am I a help or a hinderance?

Pastor's I am going to be blunt, honest and to some offensive. Understand, it's not my intention to be offensive but, I am sure that I will upset some folks. Has there ever been a time that you wished a Church member would just hurry up and leave? I remember when I first had that thought go through my mind about a member and I cringed. I thought, "That's awful, I am to be an undershepherd to this lamb no matter how irritating or draining they are." I sincerely asked God to forgive me and I continued praying for the member and trying to help them. Before you know it, they do it all again (What they did to begin with to make you wish they would leave). This process, happens over and over and over again and it absolutely wears me out. Brethren, what do we do? Is there a time that we finally tell someone, "I think you would be better served elsewhere."? Do we gently (or not so gently) lead them to the door and pat them on the back and say "goodbye"? If any of you have the answer I am willing to listen but, I bring all that up to make us think about something, This is for Church members, Pastors, Deacons, Missionaries the whole gamut. Let us ask the question, "Am I a help or a hinderance?" Obviously the type of Church member I mentioned while ago is hinderance. Instead of being a solution they are a problem, instead of helping the Lord's work they hinder it. They drain instead of energize the work. We could go on and on with compare and contrast but, we will stop there. Now lets ask ourselves this question, in regards to the ministry and service to the Lord in my Church am I source of encouragement by being faithful to Church (Hebrews 10:24,25)? Do I encourage God's people by my example in the life I lead (I Corinthians 11:1)? Am I a blessing to the Leadership (Pastor) of the Church (Hebrews 13:7)? These are only a few things to consider. My hope and prayer as a Pastor is that I am a help to the flock God has brought me to. I pray that you can be a help too. By the way, I would like an answer to my question.....Is it wrong to wish a Church member would leave?

God bless you,

Pastor Troy
