Dare Not Messing With God’s Servants
(Passage: Jeremiah 38)
Those who serve GOD in any special capacity are servants of God. They mean so much to God, and he would do whatever it takes to care for them.
The care we must take- The dos and don’ts to God’s servants are explained in this writeup.
To better understand this topic, let’s examine the life of Prophet Jeremiah in the Bible.
Jeremiah spoke the mind of God during his time. His people hated him, and they were willing to take his life.
The people of Judah expressed their rage for the outcry of the man of God- who asked for their repentance and reconciliation with God.
Judah’s authority apprehended Jeremiah and cast him into the pit with the hope of starving to death.
The scripture reported,
“So they took Jeremiah and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the king’s son, which was in the court of the prison, and they let Jeremiah down with ropes. And in the dungeon, there was no water but mire. So Jeremiah sank in the mire” (Jeremiah 38:6).
Lesson on How to Handle God’s Servants
People that God has specially chosen to serve his unique purpose are supposed to be appreciated and respected.
Unfortunately, people lose consciousness of this fact; they rage against God’s servants- believing, in retrospect, they rebel against the message delivered.
Facts About Dealing God’s Servants
Whether we like it or not, servants of God are God’s chosen people; we ought to handle them with care; otherwise, we may offend God.
Of course, there is no doubt that our society will rather tramble upon religion and persecute the Christian and God’s servants, but this act is more or less double jeopardy. In the sense that the message is lost and the servants are oppressed. The winner in the scenario is the devil!

Are the servants of God perfect? The answer is “No!” They are fallible people, just like everyone else; of course, they are held to a higher standard by God, but the fact here is that God’s ministers are humans. They are prone to the same mistakes as others, so expect they may sometimes drift, as you do.
