Give It Away

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Nehemiah 7:1-4

Good leaders know they can't do it all. They understand that leading well requires them to give away some of their responsibilities to others. It makes better use of time, skills and talent (of the leader and the one receiving the new responsibility), and the giving away of duties and the responsibilities that come with them is one of the best ways to teach and develop new leaders.

"I gave my brother Hanani and Hananiah the governor of the castle charge over Jerusalem, for he was a more faithful and God-fearing man than many" (vs. 2).

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rank yourself when it comes to delegating responsibilities and tasks? If you're not in the high numbers (8 and above), what is it that is holding you back? What's one thing you can do TODAY to take a step forward in this area (start small)? Why is delegating so important in our role as a leader? Tami

Moses' father-in-law, Jethro told Moses and he heeded his words as we read in Ex.18:17-25.
" Many hands make light work." a proverb dating back in the 1300's is still true.

If you don't delegate the work you will become discouraged and have "burn-out".
