Tenderness is the heart of pastoring.
The servant of the Lord is not expected to strife with any but be gentle to all. 2 Timothy 2:23,24.
Jesus was always moved with compassion towards His followers – they could touch Him. Mathew 14:36.
He was reachable. He even embraced their children. Luke 18:16.
He is touched with the feelings of our infirmity. Hebrews 4:15.
Moses was not qualified to lead God’s people until he became certified as tender.
Therefore, as God’s servant, you must be reachable and be touchable!
