I recently had a conversation with a pastor friend of mine who happens to be a female. She was sharing the various unique things that women have confided in her about; one that she shared made me have one of those hmmmm moments. She stated that several women over the years and one recently have shared that They Think Their Pastor’s Sexy! Not to be confused with the popular country music song “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” Not only do they think their Pastor’s Sexy, but they struggle with their mind wandering as they are watching and listening to their pastor speak.
Pastor Craig Groeschel teaches the art of “Bouncing Your Eyes” in other words don’t keep your eyes focused on someone for too long… keeping your eyes moving can keep you out of trouble. This is something that is stereotypically geared towards guys… but what about the ladies?
After my conversation with my friend; I might make the assumption that there are women sitting in pews and seats of churches all around the country that may be struggling with the inability to “Bounce Their Eyes.” As their eyes are having to fixated on their “Sexy Pastor,” who happens to be in front of them for lengthy periods of time each and every week.
The thoughts running through their head might be something like this: He’s Hot; I like that suit; Are those True Religion Jeans; He’s so Handsome, Nice Hair, He dresses so fly, I can tell he’s been working out, I wonder if… and then their mind wanders for a moment or two or three or four. Unfortunately, this cycle can repeat itself on a weekly basis; but what is a lady to do so when She Thinks Her Pastor’s Sexy!
- Do you think this a common/legitimate problem or simply isolated cases? Thoughts in general!
- Does this struggle for women contribute to the vulnerability and moral failures of pastors?
- Any suggestions for the ladies, Do the ladies just get a pass?
