A DELEGATED BLESSING


There are some people that just take on too much, over crowding their schedules and refusing to delegate things they can because they either are afraid others can’t get the job done or want control. They end up finding themselves worn out with nothing left in the tank. God wants us to get rest and relieve some of the duties that we can because he knows we would be more productive if we did.

So be like Moses, who  judge the people after receiving some Godly advice from his father n law was not afraid to release some of his duties so that he could be more productive for God.

Exodus 18:17-24 NIV
Moses’ father-in-law replied, “What you are doing is not good. You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone. Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must be the people’s representative before God and bring their disputes to him. Teach them his decrees and instructions, and show them the way they are to live and how they are to behave. But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. Have them serve as judges for the people at all times, but have them bring every difficult case to you; the simple cases they can decide themselves. That will make your load lighter, because they will share it with you. If you do this and God so commands, you will be able to stand the strain, and all these people will go home satisfied.”   Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said.
