Care for the flock of God entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. Don't lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your good example---1Peter5:2-3 ;

Who has bewitched [bedeviled] you---Galatians3:1

Some one requested Daily Encounter to do a lesson on spiritual abuse in the church where some pastors were found rather than shepherding their flock, rebuke people into submission.

"This type of people are very insecure and an emotional sickness....they are playing the role of God and God's Spirit in other peoples' lives. However, when we (as adults) allow ourselves to be controlled by others instead of yielding to the control or direction of God's Spirit, we become a part of the controlling person's sickness because of our own insecurity and immaturity"

May be this is an awakening call to those leaders in Church who have got into this unbecoming attitude and also those church members who were too submissive or having a couldn't careless attitude. Time to wake up and serve our Lord gloriously.
