Sometimes church members put unrealistic expectations on pastors’ wives but remember—your main job description is to please your husband and please your Lord!
If you are a pastor’s wife, you could become frustrated and discouraged if you feel that you must please everyone. The most important Scripture to remember as a pastor’s wife is Colossians 3:12 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.
