A godly church leader has a target on his back. The overseer of a flock of God's people has the attention of the devil. He's also apt to get criticism from the sheep. Just ask Moses about that one! The character qualifications are high, in part because Satan knows that if he can find a chink in the armor, and tear down the man, he can divide and devastate an entire congregation. We're in 1 Timothy 3, talking about Taking Care of God's Church.
