Entrusting spiritual care

February 4, 2009

This morning I was filling out a reference for someone to work at a summer camp. One question stirred up some thoughts in me. “If you have/had children, would you have any reservations about entrusting them to the physical and spiritual care of this individual?”

Who do you entrust your physical and spiritual care to? Most of us entrust physical care to family, friends, and employers. We even trust utility companies, local businesses/organizations, public transit, public service organizations, and government/government agencies with our physical well being. Spiritual care is something we often don’t think about much. If you are actively involved in a church you are entrusting the leadership of that church with your spiritual care. Home group or small group leaders are entrusted with the spiritual care of those they share time with.

Last spring I made a decision to leave a church where I could no longer entrust my spiritual care to the leadership. As a Christian we should consider our spiritual care more important than anything else in our lives. It should be the foundation of all we are, all we believe and value, and all we do. If we entrust our spiritual care to individuals that do not treat it well we can be deceived, misled, wounded, and it can affect us eternally.

Are you entrusting your spiritual care to individuals that are trust worthy? Do they understand the significance of care for others spiritual lives? Are you worthy of someone entrusting you with their spiritual care?
