Barnabas reminds us in this book that pastor's kids are sinful, fallen humans just like everyone else. They didn't inherit some special DNA that grants them automatic sanctification right out of the womb. He also reminds us that pastors themselves are sinful, and that the families of those in ministries share many of the same struggles, conflicts and dynamics that all of our families have. The difference? They live in a giant fishbowl. Everyone in church knows them. In the case of Barnabas in particular, the fame of his father reaches far outside of Bethlehem Baptist Church, outside of the Twin Cities, outside of the United States even. His dad is very well known, and Barnabas is not only in a fishbowl, his family is on display in the aquarium.
