Sharing the Work
Read Exodus 18:1 to 19:25; Matthew 16:21 to 17:13
In some churches, especially the smaller ones, the minister is required to do many things. He’s an administrator, takes care of the bulletins, and may even shovel the snow. All of these activities leave limited time for actually shepherding his flock.
Something similar happened to Moses. He had taken on the responsibility of being a judge for all the Israelites. Jethro, his father-in-law, offered advice.
“Why do you alone sit as judge, while all these people stand around you from morning till evening?” (Exodus 18:14).
Then Jethro taught Moses to delegate and share responsibilities with others. Those men would judge smaller problems, leaving Moses to make decisions for the more serious ones. Delegating would give Moses more time to be God’s representative and teach God’s laws to the people.
The church works more smoothly and gets more done when all members fill their roles.
Challenge for Today: Do something for the pastor of a small congregation.
Quicklook: Exodus: 18:13–23
